I've got a couple of questions. I'm attempting to get
my dogs and piggies in the mail myself, but as I
addressed the labels last night I ran across a couple
of addresses that stumped me.
On the Year of the Dog list...Rosanna
Jurisevic....would you mind sending me your address? I
use the excuse that my brian gets full, but really, it
just means that I'm an idiot sometimes. And in my zeal
to get to the images, I pay no attention what so ever
to the envelope which finds its final resting place in
my garbage. That said, *sniff* I don't have your
return address.
Then on Year of the Boar there's a truely funky
address for ?enol SAKK? from Turkey. Is this for
real?? Never in my life have I seen an address like
this, but hey, the world is a big place and I'm
definitely not the expert on it, so... would anyone
please tell me if this one is real, or if not, where I
should send my priceless jewel?
I hope everyone has a fun filled, safe holiday
season. You have my best!

Good Morning Baren,
I just reread the holiday message from Dave and heard him read the poem. What a great treat, almost like having him here in Oregon. Every year I enjoy it all over again, so very clever and fun. I do appreciate the opportunity to belong to this group. Although it has been fairly quiet lately. Maybe we have talked the processes through until we have little to say. I find that hard to believe but it is a busy time of year.

Our show of woodblock printmaking, all moku hanga, is coming down in a week. The response to it has been very good with many people wanting to know more about the process. We have sold some work but not as much as I had hoped. Always the way, great expectations and not so great sales. Possibly this is because all the artists are in Japan but one never knows. If there is one thing about sales we know is we don't have a clue why stuff sells or does not sell. I think we can all testify we are mystified about this. There does not seem to be any real rule of thumb. Several pieces I thought would just run out of the gallery by themselves are still waiting for homes. Some of the work has about 50 colors...I swear it is amazing. Such deep rich tones, no wimpy colors here. I am very impressed and a little discouraged. What is so easy for me in oil is much harder in waterbased inks but also much safer and way easier to print on the kitchen table since no press is involved. A real
plus if there is a space issue in one's studio.

I did a nice little display of tools and blocks with info on the Baren as well as our local printmaking organization. Also we promoted the Japanese Gardens who were a good sponsor of the show. Taking a hint from April and Sarah we have teamed up with them to do a demo in their space this spring for the Cherry Blossom Festival so it will be a win, win for everyone. We gave out coupons for $2 off admission but only used about half of them...maybe the cold had people less interested in the outdoors! I think the gardens would be lovely in snow...but we have not had any yet and the way things shut down here with an inch of white, I think it might not even be open or if it was, one could not get there as the roads would be iced over. I admit to only taking inexpensive tools down to display, I wanted people to be able to handle them...but did not want to scream to loudly if one disappeard. So only the tools that I no longer use are on know, the set of 5 for $10.
But the general public will get the idea and not know they are very poor tools.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
my best to everyone and hopes for a happy 2007
(I am working on my boar...really)

On that very same note, some of us just have a little program cut and paste
the address info onto labels so whatever you write in there is what will be
on the envelope; no-caps being the main offender here.

Merry Winter Solstice everyone! I, for one, am looking forward to
loooooooonger days!

I think I can help a bit Y-O-T coordinator I get an email
notification whenever someone signs up for the Boar...or doggie...or
Here is what I have for that person in Turkey (email included)...hope you
can translate it better than what shows on the webpage. I don't recognize
this participant as a regular Baren contributor but that does not mean
he/she is not lurking.....if you are....please come up for air and
introduce yourself !!!!!

Şenol SAK has joined the Exchange.

Name: Şenol SAK
NO ;6/3 14200 BOLU-TURKEY

For Rosanna Jurivesic she did not want her address displayed for personal
reasons. She chose to take a chance that
people would send her a card once they received can contact her
for her address at:

"Rosanna Jurisevic"

hope that helps...Happy Holidays to all you bareners, Julio

I too have been preparing envelopes to send out to everybody. My
Inoshishi prints are stuffed and I'm just finishing writing all of
the appropriate addresses on each. Like Monica, I too had a little
bewilderment about "?enol SAKK?"........... ? I think that you're not
the only one who needs a little clarification on the exact details
of this address, Monica.

Happy holidays.........

I'm off to Indonesia for a little R&R
