Its only 39 degrees right now, but sunshine makes all the difference. Im going to try to finish carving my pig on a bicycle today (week 3). The print shop is open today until 5pm for any artists who want to carve, print or just hang out.
UPDATE :Taking a moment to step back and think about where this is going
UPDATE: I think im done…maybe just one or two little details?
the test proof!
Spring is around the corner, so i thought id throw some terra cotta flower pots for my yard. I was just telling a friend that switching from porcelain to groggy terra cotta is like going from driving a sportscar to an 18 wheel truck!
Its printmaking day at the log cabin print shop. Im ready to start a new 16×20 woodcut. Heres my sketch (only about 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches in size) ive transferred the sketch to tracing paper and drew a rough grid so i can flip the image and transfer to the wood block. No photos or computers…all analog. Stay tuned for progress reports
This is a big (for me) woodcut 16×20″. My goal today is to finish carving it while i’m working at the Log Cabin Print Shop from noon-5pm.
You are welcome to stop by: to see how the woodcut is going -or- to make your own!
UPDATE: im finished carving. This little goat at the top is my happiness! Time to ink and test proof
The test proof. I am happy!
The Finished Woodcut! 3 Goats!
Remember 2 weeks ago, when I made a block print of the John P. Parker house in Ripley, Ohio?
Well, i thought it was such a great scene (and important historic landmark) that I made an acrylic painting of the scene!

Ive finished carving the John P Parker house linocut. I started it last week. Its a small linocut 4 1/2×6″, so it was a challenge getting the small details.
Time to proof. Will update with the result!
Awhile ago I started 3 paintings. They were different interpretations of the same scene. Since then, I’ve made some progress
also, since then, I have been gifted with an old drafting/artist table. It belonged to one of my best friends, also an artist, Lucciano Moral. He was making room in his house, and thought I would like it. He was RIGHT!!! It’s perfect! Thank you!
Its warm, but windy today at the log cabin print shop.
Today, im going to make a linocut of John P Parker’s house. A few days ago, i made this sketch while in Ripley, ohio.
I made a few adjustments to the design, and now, im ready to start carving!
Saturday’s carving progress
Stay tuned for updates!
Last week was busy at the cabin. The cabin was filled with artists, so i didnt get a chance to do any personal printing. The holidays are over, and its a rainy saturday. I expect it wont be as busy, so my goal is to carve this linocut.
almost finished carving!
