What's goin' on?

A little of this, a little of that, and a head cold, that's what's goin' on. (sigh) Not enough of a cold to put me down for the count, but enough to be annoying and energy-sapping.

Still, there's plenty going on in the studio. I've got another little 5 x 7-inch linocut on the bench right now, and I'm pushing around images and ideas for some larger works to come.

Like all my pieces, the current work-in-progress involves plenty of experimentation. The first color pass was a blend, but it was so light that I couldn't really get a good shot of it. Here are the colors on the inking slab and on the roller, if you can believe it.

The brightest green in the upper left corner of the slab wasn't involved in the rollup, except as the base color for the other two. It didn't look like much on the paper, but it was enough to get things started.

Next, a green and gray blend, also very transparent. But at least now there's something to see. Sort of.
