Hi Again!

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple weeks. We had a good vacation to see family in California. And then when we got back it was time to celebrate my baby's first birthday!! Wow! hard to believe she's a year old.

I've made progress on the Sandhill Cranes block, but it was slow going with all of the distractions. I should be able to finish it quickly now. Here's how it looks today.

Sandhill Cranes Carving

Here is the new block I'm carving. I'm having a good time with it! I think it will look good with the Crows and Great Blue Heron prints.
We are going on a long road trip to visit family (with the baby and dog). So I may not be able to post for a while. But I'm bringing this block and some other little projects, so maybe I'll get to do some artwork on the trip. Take care!

More Patterns!

When I have a few minutes, I'm still having fun with these stamped patterns. The one above is a favorite because of the way it seems to move and shift!

Sandhill Cranes

Here is a drawing I'm going to turn into a linocut. Every spring, Sandhill Cranes spend some time in the Yampa Valley. They are fun to watch walking around in the fields on their long legs. In this picture they are pulling spring rain clouds through the sky. Hopefully this one will look good with the Great Blue Heron and Crows linocuts.
