Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.

Merry Christmas!


Wishing all of you a very Happy Holiday!

The idea for our Christmas/Holiday card this year was 
stolen borrowed from Matt's gorgeous Loon carving.
 
 
I decided to make a block print and didn't have any linoleum block left 
(well I have some large sheets that I am saving for another use) 
so I asked Matt if he had any wood I could use.
He gave me a nice board of Yellow Cedar!


This is the wood cut block and piece of glass I used to spread the paint.


It turned out fairly nicely, a little messy when I printed the cards, and to fit in a legal-size envelope, the size of the cards made me have to cut off part of the whole-bird print, but it turned out ok (you can see some of the cards printed in the middle photo).

Just wanting to take this time to thank you for looking in at my blog. I always love to hear your comments and have a chat.

Cheers! Happy painting, or carving!
