A little more

We lucked out with perfect weather for our trip to Denver this weekend: low 70s, clear skies, slight breeze. Of course tonight it's supposed to dip down to 33F here in the Center of the Universe. Seems like just a couple of weeks ago we were covering up the tomato plants for late spring frosts. Time to dig out the cheesecloth again. (Oh, wait... I just looked at the forecast again. 39F. I think we're safe now.)

This morning started quiet in the world of client projects, so I tackled a few more tiny linocuts. Three new ones are carved... I may or may not get to printing tonight... it just depends on how the next hour or so evolves. I knew I wanted to make a little snail print, in part to honor one of my earliest chums in the blogosphere, Snail. But the other morning I woke up from a dream in which I had a pet snail. Its name was Scooter.

Don't ask me. I have no idea.

Anyway.... I'm brewing a "Brush and Baren Readers' Special," for these little prints. Some technical details to work out on the website, but keep watching this space for a splashy announcement. Well. An announcement of some sort. I dunno if it will be splashy.
