Bet you thought I was slacking off

We "lost" pretty much all of last Thursday to Dancing With Plumbers, so yesterday (Saturday) was devoted to catching up with work things. The DM spent his day in further recording efforts. I spent mine tweaking text and organizing an inventory of historic photos to acquire for the Collegiate Peaks Byway interp sign project.

By evening, however, I was ready to fling the entire project off into the Great Beyond. What's the obvious cure for too much time in front of the computer? Time in front of the lino jig, of course!

Second colors were pulled last night on both of the tiny linocuts, and this evening (after a looooooonnngggg hike in the hills just outside of town) color #3 went down on both of them, as well. For the sunflower this means the game is over, but for the sparrow, well, we've got 3 colors to go. What happened to "little and simple," eh? I just can't seem to help myself.

Sunflower colors 2 & 3.

Sparrow colors 2 & 3 (3 more to go!)

  1. Six colors on a tiny lino? You really can't help yourself! The sunflower's a treat, and the sparrow looks like it'll be a jewel too. Congrats!
