50 years ago first earthlings orbited the Moon and were not Anders, Borman and Lovell in Apolo 8. It was Soviet Union's 'Zond 5', boarding two Russian steppe tortoises, some worms, flies and seeds.They all survived the journey , even plunging into Indian Ocean. Ocean must have fealt much better than outer space, except impact, of course. Story goes that Tortoises lived, worms, flies and seeds too, hopefully ever after. It did send a message that earthlings can survive such journey and seemed as a good idea for US to send humans after, on Apolo 8, to seal the deal.

Some monotype experimentations/"failures".

Today was a day not unlike most days of late- full of indecision, and fear. Before, so often the fear was based on not being good enough; now, I feel afraid of being good enough. Realizing that I can be something, do something, say something, is frightening. I can honestly say I'm not sure what "my art" is about, why I must do it, or what art is anyway.
I feel restless, because I have a burning to create but no knowledge of a direction to put the energy; an impulse to harness my energy but also release it.
But maybe I don't have to know now; to be comfortable being uncomfortable... .

David Walling Humphrey (American, 1871-1950): (Faun serenading a nymph), color monotype, 1909. Early monotypist David Walling Humphrey learned the technique at the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 19th century. One of his monotypes was included in Joann Moser's catalogue "Singular Impressions - The Monotype in America", page 130, figure 138. He did most of his work around Darien, Connecticut and was associated with the Silvermine art colony.

Moser notes, on page 129: "A published description of his monotypes in 1931 applies to his earliest monotypes as well: 'misty, gray-green trees; graceful figures in diaphanous robes...fascinating satyrs, leering behind gray lichen-draped rocks - a world poetic in its conception, - a visualization of Debussy's 'A l'apres midi d'un faune.' '' In this composition a faun (satyr) serenades a nymph with his Pan Pipe. She balances on a tree branch, looking down at him. The artist signed and dated the work (1909) within the image in the lower right and re-signed it in the lower right margin.

Introducing Katherine McDowell!
Artist Statement: "I have a need to explore, experiment and play during my process. I intend to decode the secrets behind the visual interpretation of our natural world - the qualities of light, the subtleties of texture, the harmonies of color. I experiment with various techniques and compositions, but most importantly, my process satisfies the universal human need to play." —Katherine McDowell
