My friend John came to visit. We are both artists, and spent most of the visit making prints. We made reduction linocuts: a technique where we use the same block for more than one color. We start with the lightest color, print it, then cut the block to design the second color. If all goes well, and we line the blocks correct, we have a beautiful 2 color design. These are particularly unique because; once we switch colors, it’s impossible to print that color’s design ever again. Limited edition!
Good morning!!! Thanks everyone for coming out last night for final friday.

While doing my morning porchsitting/birdwatching, i started this design for a new greeting card.
I was born in Utah, the beehive state. During my formative years as a young artist in kentucky, Luciano Moral , and the original beehive tavern in augusta were a big support and influence of my work.I have a few friends who are beekeepers, and i am learning about how important our pollinators are. This tuesday, there will be a talk about pollinators at the caza sikes gallery…part of Ursula Roma s wonderful mind gardens art exhibit.
Keep watching this post for updates on the print. Or stop by. Ill be printing from noon-5pm.
Im carving a new woodcut today at the log cabin print shop. Ill be here until 5pm.
