Dear Kent-o,

I'm jealous of your new possession.

You could carve and print a life size profile of yourself!

I can also see a nice verticle scroll hanging printed off of it.

But then it leads to a quest for a nice long piece of quality paper.

**You could host the next Baren Summit II and use it for a collaborative
project for each member to carve onto it!

You could carve your favorite images into it, and incorporate it into a
table top.

Carve and print off of it, then hang it above your mantel.

At any rate, let us know what you do with it.

Have fun :)

All the best,

You have certainly captured the English Countryside I remember on my
Thank you for sharing those and I hope to see you in our Exchanges soon.

I couldn't help notice with your picture of you at your carving bench
that your light on your work falls directly from in front of you down
to your work..... as a left hander, you may find it more comfortable
for you if the angle of the lamp light comes from your right hand side
in front of your shoulder at an angle across your block and bounces up
again to the top left of your block ..... for two reasons.....
presently the bouce of light now comes up from your block directly into
your eyes which is not "good" for your eyesight and secondly, if you
have an angle to your light source then you will have better definition
on the lines and the cut edges (valley shadows) you are working on on
your woodblock. I hope this will help.....

Your Medieval Gallery also had some very unusual design work.... nice.

I want to thank all of you who have sent me some fantastic Monkeys!!!!
I am printing mine now and due to a bout of insanity and two solo shows, I have not been very active lately
One solo show in the Glenn Gallery in Longboat Key was up and running last Saturday with a combination of 60 prints and drawings. Whew!!!
That one is up and over.
Have another solo show just two weeks after this one comes down.
This one is on the other Coast in the Vero Beach Cultural Center.

So as soon as sanity prevails I will once again assail you with my e mails, questions and what not!!!!!

my large print exchange print was printed on a "wide cherry board" i came
across a once in a lifetime purchase 16" wide clear piece of cherry.
there was a crack in part of it but it was flat and clear. up until i got
that board 10" was the widest I ever came across in cherry but i have found
maple in wider boards. but mostly glueing up smaller boards is better
because of warpage. the problem with gluing up boards is that they can check or
crack along the glue lines if you have wide humidity extremes.

i am finishing up the colophone for exchange 19 and it should be in the
mail next week

I had my web page hosted with, but they suddenly put it down,
as well as other's artists pages. They did not give us any explanation, but
well, after all it was free.
My question: Does anybody know of any trustable free hosting service, with
the least pin-ups, banners, ads, etc.?
I know I should pay for a reliable service, but this is just a question.
I'm learning to design my own page so I don't want to pay for it right now.
