Linocut in progress: Yep, it's a puffin!

There's no fooling Brush and Baren readers. Yes, indeed, this is going to be a small (9" x 6") image of a puffin. A sort of "practice print" for what I hope will be a much larger piece later.

But just because you could identify the critter after only one color pass didn't mean you could tell anything about its surroundings, could you? Glad I could maintain that mystery until color pass number two.

Although obviously that mystery is now solved, too, since clearly it's standing on a rock.

A slanty rock. With lots of bumps. And possibly some lichen. We'll see.
