“I Don’t Know, I Didn’t Ask” is an experimental print that explores the often muddied relationship with our own being.
As humans, we tend not to question the authenticity of our own thoughts and actions, instead giving way to them at our own peril.
This tendency leads us to react based on conditioning and habit rather than existing in the moment with what is, and reacting from a place of love and clarity.
BUT THERE IS HOPE!
Nature always has a way of bouncing back, and since we are nature at our core, we have the ability to change the way we perceive and live in this beautiful world.
The leaves surrounding the figure represent the choice that is always present, to return to stillness and just be in this eternal now.
This print also marks a turning point in my approach to lithography and drawing style. The gum resist and rubbing crayon method used here is now used on all of my lithos!

This lithograph was first carefully drawn onto a piece of limestone using a gum resist and rubbing crayon method.
It then endured a chemical process that produced a permanent impression of the image on the stone.
Ink was then applied to the stone using a roller, and the image was transferred onto paper using a lithography press.
