Sunshine & Paper Cutting

It has been such a cold wet spring in Steamboat. We are all missing the sun terribly. I made this little sun linocut to be part of my series of Colorado prints. This may be the most sun I get for days!

I've been really busy and unfortunately don't have any exciting art to share. I did buy a marvelous book last weekend that I'd love to share though. It's called Paper Cutting: Contemporary Artists, Timeless Crafts

This book features 26 artists who each have their own wonderful styles of cut paper art. The detail of some of the pieces are just amazing! I really love black cut paper against white. I think they have a similar look to relief prints. I keep thinking I'm going to try some but I haven't yet. Here are some photos-

And here is one of my favorites by Su Blackwell


  1. That book looks fantastic! Thanks for posting. I like the way you added sunshine to your photo, by the way.

  2. Thanks Kjersten! As a paper artist yourself I think you'd really love the book. It's so inspiring!

  3. Wow Jill. Thanks for aquainting me w/this work! Su Blackwell's work is breath-taking.

  4. Oh, forgot to mention that I love your sunshine - not a bad idea!
