Sarah- your camel is beautiful! I just love the colors and his character. He is regal!
Cindy...last name Learn- C&C's always welcome.
Alex- wonderful job on the shepherd boy. Beautiful Christmas card as well!
jfgarcia- your work is fantastic!
Marsha- Woody Santa does look lost without his reindeer! Your watercolor technique is fantastic!
Thank you all for your comments, and for pardoning Ms Turkey.
Sam- so nice to see you here. I was worried when I hadn't seen any posts from you.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Nealy- thank you for sharing your granddaughters little song! I hope you're getting video of her, to share when she's older. So much fun!
Christina- your Serenade is very nice! I sometimes forget to put on music when I'm painting and I usually have to stop and figure out why I can't concentrate as well. I think music helps so much with the creative process.
I finally have something to post. It still needs a little carving & tweaking; just a first proof. Lino block print with added red WC.
4 x 5. Ugh, how do I make the pics smaller on these posts?
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Hi Catherine, Claudia, Cindy and Jen, thanks very much for your wonderful comments on the shepherd boy.
Nealey, you are so talented in so many artistic pursuits - from watercolors to quilting to refurnishing chairs. This is another! I like this and admire that you used this technique. It works beautifully for this kind of "patterned" image.
There may be a little box showing the maximum width or height when you post images - I think it says 500 is the maximum size. To make your image smaller, just put in a smaller number than 500.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Wow Nealy what a nice block print. It will be a great card.
C and C always welcomed
Thank you Alex for how to make photo smaller. It worked! It still needs a little carving & tweaking; just a first proof. Lino block print with added red WC. 4 x 5
Thank you Alex, Jen & Geri for your kind comments. I'm not REAL pleased with it. I tried the MOO block which is like a big soft rubber eraser. Yes it cuts like butter, but I like the feel of linoleum or wood carving better - old dog, ya know. Jen, I have a set of lino cutting blades made by Speedball. They are v-cuts & u-cuts & are as sharp as Exacto blades.
Nealey you could make your own wrapping paper using your block stamp. I've seen homemade wrapping paper made from a brown grocery bag that has been unfolded and 1/2 of a raw potato that has had a design carved into it dipped into paint and pressed all over the paper.
C&C's are welcome.
