This week I had Colette and Jocelyn over for some late afternoon carving and printing. I haven't done much lino cutting since school many years ago. I wish that I had taken pictures of what Colette and Jocelyn did! They made some lovely work... I am so lucky to have two such talented friends to inspire me :)
I started with a banner(tiny -- cut from an eraser). I plan to stamp it on to tags.
Then I graduated to doing a portrait of my puppy. It is very "Andy". Especially the movement created with those uncut lines in the background. (This one is made from soft cut linolem. It's about 2"x3"
After the girls left, I was still itching to do more, so I tried a self portrait. Oops, I cut the line away that was the side of the neck. But I'm still pretty happy with it. I'll try some more this weekend.....
