Of course, now I'm thinking about a fifth color. Just some little dark bits. But we'll see. I'm running out of time, since I'd like to submit this little linocut to the National Small Print Show in Creede... deadline April 1 (and they jury from the prints themselves, not slides). We'll see how fast this color dries, eh?

And, it must be my lucky day. This morning two different people tagged me with the Six Word Memoir meme. I'm gonna have to think about it before I commit to a post, since I was thinking about this print and my first reaction was to say "Rarely plans ahead. Lucks out anyway."


  1. these are beautiful, I'm really missing printmaking and working out how to afford my own press :)

    I loved your choice of words - they'd suit me perfectly!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this process with's absolutely fascinating.

    Your work is stunning...your teaching: inspiring.


  3. Vivien-

    The entire reason I started doing relief prints was a lack of access to a press. I still do all my prints with a baren and a spoon on a table. My first love was intaglio, but it wasn't practical. Now I'm just hooked on lino's portability and low-techness.

    You're welcome. And thanks for the "atta girl"!
