Up and running

We had a fun afternoon at the Maverick Potter yesterday. Traffic was good, conversations were fun, and the blueberry juice/fizzy water punch was the perfect refreshment on a hot afternoon. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and will continue to do so the rest of the month. There's a lot to see in addition to linocuts... including pottery by Mark Rittman and turned wood pieces by Ed Berg.

Thanks to Mark and Suzanne, Maverick Potter artist/proprietors for the opportunity to share their space!

Suzanne Rittman and I at the Second Saturday reception.

The week ahead looks a bit... how shall I say it?... It will be a week of lots of variety as one contract job wraps up, another contract begins, I try to get a new lino and/or woodcut on the table, the DM leaves town for gigs, and I get ready to have a little display at the Salida Farmers Market next Saturday. Relief prints EVERYWHERE, that's my motto.

A worthy motto, I'd say.Go for it!
I did a reduction workshop yesterday and after resisting for years, think I could learn to enjoy it!

dinahmow ... do you mean "resisting" as a printing technique or a psychological one?

note to Jeff...I see you don't have a site so I'll answer here:
I did mean a psychological resistance, but I do sometimes also use resists in printing.

shrr, sorry to use your phone this way, but I have to talk to dnhmw ... so, I'm not sure if "I see you don't have a site" is a comment like "I see you're wearing plaid," but I'll assume you're pleased and even a bit jealous to find someone so siteless. Thanks for the clarification about resistance, but, of course, resistance is futile.

Jeffrey, I might have to start charging you minutes for your use of this line for intercontinental smartypantsness. Dinah, feel free to torment him all you want, I know where to find him if he gets out of hand. ;-)

I didn't know! I'm sorry. I didn't know there was a risk of an international incident. Some of my best friends are Australian. Dinah, Sherry lives a block away, and she could park a PT Cruiser in front of my house in no time flat. So I would never intentionally behave in an untoward way.
