It might look more cold and blizzard-like with a black sky? Originally I was pondering the lack of snow in our future, as well as the unpleasantness of dancing in slush.
Linocut on Japanese paper, 12 x 12 cm.
Full cold moon; a time when we’re naturally accelerated, energy is flowing and things will naturally come to a conclusion. Time to consider that ridiculous ten year project which we can now let go of.
Today’s full moon coincides with a general election. There was a double rainbow in the sky when I went out to vote.
Linocut 10 x 8cm, linseed oil ink on paper. A fairy light behind the picture for a brighter fire.
While looking for card to print on, I found a long-lost piece of brown lino with a baby carved in a star. My favourite son is 21 so maybe this block has been in a box since we moved away from Birmingham in 1998.
The patterns around the star are made from the zigzagging movements when trying to hack into old lino. I’ll see how it prints later…
Printing some postcards and a few cards to fold and put into envelopes when they’re dry…
A thought, for those followers who are waiting for a linocut class. The picture shows a block that will be printed in one colour only. The outlines of the lettering have been cut first. At the moment I’m cutting around the holly leaves, not really staying with the pencil lines. Creative cutting?
