a detail shot of my latest lino cut - more on this below.....but first:
Do you see what I see?
I think my little Primroses from dear, dear Elizabeth have little buds!
We had a mixture of rain and snow today, so I didn't spend a lot of time taking this picture.
Snow: can you believe it?!!!
I did spend a lot of time carving this lino block. I found that I learned a lot by doing the first 9 patch exercise that I showed you yesterday. I've made several prints of today's work, but once I got out in the dye studio (which is not attached to our house and did I mention it was COLD and RAINING/SNOWING?) I realized that I wanted more and different fabric. Of course, that was in the house, so I had to make do with what I had. I did want to try out the white textile screening paint, so it was nice to at least have some red fabric.
I also printed over yesterday's 9-patch piece....I love it!
This is the little guy I based my carving on......isn't he cute? My sister-in-law Carol sent him and several of his buddies to me shortly after we had visited the Huichol Indian area in Mexico. I love the intricate beading, the bright colors, and the fact that he's a turtle! He is near and dear to me!
