"Tahoe Night" 19x17" on mulberry paper
I haven't been painting the last couple of days, but have managed to complete a couple of printmaking projects. "Tahoe Night" is a woodcut I've been working on for a couple of weeks. It's a rather large (18x14" image on 19x17" paper) version of an image I've been working with since a camping trip in July. It's for sale at my Etsy shop.
"Waxwing" 5x5" on Rives BFK
The second woodcut is inspired by a flock of waxwings that invaded my backyard last winter and camped out in the maple behind the house. There's a flock that spends the entire winter gorging on the berries in my neighborhood, but they're pretty shy, so I was thrilled to have an opportunity to whip out my camera and get some shots of them. I'm thinking about adding a border to the image, but I need to let it sit for a while.
