Snow Storm

I hope everyone was warm and cozy during the Blizzard! Now's a good time to catch up on some reading(especially after shoveling all morning)!

This is a soft cut I did as a thank you for my friends' folks for inviting us away for a weekend.  Great weekend and a super sweet dog.

Facing the New Year

The New Year is here, and I hope everyone is excited about the new possibilities that come with it. Like this snowshoer facing an unbroken path, I hope 2013 will be a fresh trail of creativity, renewed motivation, and fearless exploration. Best wishes to friends and followers all!

print flashback

These wonky blocks are a print I just came across that I did years ago.  I am looking forward to carving into my little pile of soft cut blocks in the new year.  There hasn't been much of my own art going on around here lately.   The hustle and bustle is over in a flash, enjoy spending time with loved ones, happy holidays!

Love Bird

This is a new little print that I made recently using a soft-cut block and Akua ink. The chickadee/feeder part is made from a tiny little stamp I carved to place in the negative space of the heart shape. The branches were inspired by the ornamental cherry tree in our yard that has very gnarly branches and shriveled up fruit. Sometimes in the winter, flocks of cedar waxwings or wintering robins fly in to eat what's left of the fruit.
