In the American Portfolios, the Commentator awards “Green Eagles” to members for particularly fine prints. Prints receiving Green Eagles are then eligible for the annual Green Eagle Contest. There are two separate contests, one for monochrome prints and the other for color prints.
Winning prints from this contest receive medals and ribbons and are exhibited at the PSA Annual Conference.
Making HDP Proud!
If you have sat through competition night or an evening of image study, you are aware of Ron’s imagery. Whether it is some astrophysical picture or something processed in sepia tone, Ron has impressed us. For me, the fun part is hearing the story behind the capture and /or his decision to use monochrome or sepia.
You may remember Ron offered to build us a box to hold our prints for the library exhibits. Did I say a box? Sorry, Ron NEVER does anything as simple as a box. Our print case had inserts to keep its holdings upright with a minimum of frame damage. He then crafted a top the sealed the contents. Oh, the lid has a cord to keep it from going too far back – cord as opposed to a chain as he was concerned that the chain could mar the contents. As a finishing touch, he stenciled the box with “HDP!”
Ron’s been dabbling in wood turning as well. One of his creations was accepted by the Fuller Craft Museum’s recent exhibit.
“Men’s Razor and Stand”
Well done, Ron!
