Just Sipping the Old Year Away...

With the brittle, bitter cold weather we've been having - a nice cup of tea soothes.  Winter has caused much stillness outside and cabin fever is starting up.  (mine, anyway!) 

This drawing is one of the many I've been doing poolside as the kids swim and play indoors.  For me, drawings always mean something new is about to be made...

Happy New Year (almost) 2014!!!

Waiting for Ink to Dry

Here's the test print to the cathedral woodcut... one more printing and it's done :) 

Almost Christmas... we are pretty much ready.  How about you?

Waiting in line at the post office

This is Cordelia.... (painted woodblock print by me) she hasn't done any Christmas shopping, mailed her cards or any other holiday preparations.  The line at the post is the longest of the year.  It's too late to order online.  What's a girl to do? 

Better get busy.

Feeling like portraits...

I found this lady in a stack of paintings yesterday... she's on wood.  Maybe I should finish her!?   The thing is, I'd rather start new, fresh ones.  Maybe I need to hypnotic therapy - with an emphasis on finishing art :)
