The DM left this morning for a couple of days' work on the other side of the Continental Divide and, for reasons I can't quite understand, I spent most of the day wandering around trying to decide what to do with myself. It was after 3:00pm when I finally settled down and started carving on the current linocut, but in the end I managed to put in 8 productive hours in the studio. It's now after 11:00pm and I am happy to report that I finished both carving and printing of the last color.... wahoo!
Just in time, really, because the day after tomorrow the studio turns into a spare bedroom for the weekend. Here's the block in the jig, RTP. (Ready To Print.)
And here's the finished piece!
It was great to get a good run at it, even with a late start. Eight solid hours are a rarity (heck, THREE solid hours are a rarity)... But next time it would be nice if I got my act together a little earlier in the day, don't you thi..... zzzzzzzzzzzzz?
