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 celebrate
Wow! I am overwhelmed. I have been so busy elsewhere and so inactive here, and I just happened to look at my messages this evening and - wow. I had no idea that I had won a DD, and I'm thrilled and honored, and, just, overwhelmed. All the kind comments and attention and notes - wow. I will try to answer questions, and I thank every one of you who has enjoyed my work for taking a look.
It's good to have miserable weather once in a while - this time of year, it's the only way I can get something done indoors. This weekend we had rain, thunder, a little sun, then more rain, hail, a spot of sun, more rain... And high winds, and frost. Not much gardening going on under those conditions. So I finally finished a couple pieces that I've been working at for a week. A third is nearly done, but I have to pick up some framing supplies for it. Nice to be turning out artwork again at last.
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.
