The Gardener is Planting Seeds
Based on an old paper sculpture design, translated into black and white.  I'd really like to get better at black and white design.  About 8 x 10.            
2019 02 Good Morning
I was thinking of this one as "Where's Dinner?", but other people started calling it "Good Morning!"  That works for me.  More fuzzy printing (the tan and yellow), with the darker red printed sharp and clear over that.  Matted, it's 11 x 11.
2019 01 Winter Swans
more lino.  Reduction, with some blended rolls and fuzzy printing, and complications due to having to patch in damaged portions of the block.  A relief to get this one finished!  about 10 x 12"
Visitor at Dusk
And here's the large one for which "Mist - Fox" was a study.  It is big, for me: 17x22".  I got 12 good ones, starting with 14 - very good!  I printed everything blurry and soft-edged for the first few passes, then did a light gray layer that gave the fox a sharp outline, while still letting the blur of orange show around it.  Same with the colored leaves.  The gray background trees actually have lavender for the lowest layer - it looked quite bright in the initial passes.

Is it enough to just say "Tired - busy - hi-I'm-glad-you're-here,-but-I-can't-think-of-much-to-say"  ?

No.  More than that.  Let me see - Garden is shutting down for the long, cold winter.  No apples this year.  Busy at work (enough about that).  My nephew has been coming over for the last few weeks to learn woodblock printing, Japanese-style (also known as "moku hanga".  I'm a very inexpert amateur, but I did take a class once.  It's been fun getting out those tools again.  I made small runs of a few prints, and want to do some more. 

I hope you all have something to be glad and thankful for, whether or not you are in a place that celebrates Thanksgiving Day this month!

Hi there! Just wanted to say that your paperwork is amazing! :) It has a unique touch to it. And has that special sort of "magic" and whimsy in them. The shapes and rhythm and colours are just so interesting and wonderful.
