Harry you seem so excited by your dragons. It is wonderful to find a
subject that fits and is fun to do and you do a great job. Always enjoy the
latest and greatest one.
Weather up in our area has been pretty scary. I still do not have a full
report about friends as I could not get through to the only friend who gave
me a cell number. I will try again this afternoon. I too hope everyone is
safe and warm and well fed.

Howdy Baren friends!

I was long overdue on renewing my "service" to Baren so I started by
beginning the task of catching up the Exchange galleries.
Exchange #28 can now be seen in all its glory right here:

Enjoy! Joy! Please report bugs to me and I will spray them with a horrible

More to come,

PS As an aside, I will be redoing the colophon input form so that the
information is just a bit more standardized for each print. This will help
our new archivists immensely when cataloguing prints, our numerous
webmasters when uploading the information, and will help our web viewers
understand the process behind each print.
PLEASE all participants in exchanges make an effort to sumbit colophon
information in its entirety and on time so that we may continue to provide
the world with an astounding collection of modern woodblock/woodcut prints.

Thank you all so very mucho for putting up with my spurt of energy (you may
collectively roll your eyes HERE)

Woa, spoke too fast. I will need the images of Exchange 29 to be able to
upload that particular exchange. I thought I participated but what I have is
We have images for 29a ready for me to get to work on them.

Could either the coordinator for Exchange 29 or someone in the exchange
contact me about the images, please?!
Ideally I will need either:
-Scans of each image
-Sharp digital photos of each image
AND the colophon information for the prints.

OR (much faster for you)
I will be very happy to scan the prints if someone could please please let
me borrow their exchange. Shipping to and fro will be reimbursed.

Please contact me off list if you have Exchange 29 and can either scan/digi
the images or send me the Exchange prints.

Thank you!!!
