hi all, I propose that we finally close the signup for year of the ox
prints. I have mine nearly ready to go and the list keeps growing.

just my two cents!

Barbara and Terry:

Okay you Moss-backs, we are made for this weather! We don't have webs
between our fingers and toes for nothing. We bloom in this stuff,
doncha know? This is the perfect printmaking weather because we have
no desire or temptation to go outside. Stay put and whirl that
baren. Put on some music and dance to beat of the raindrops. It is
good for the soul and all this moisture does absolutely marvelous
things for the complexion. (For those of you who don't know, and
there are probably millions of you out there, Northwest people are
known for the beautiful, moist skin. Didn't know that? You heard it
here first. And it is absolutely not true that we grow algae and the
slimy black stuff on our bodies.)

Our creek grew to about 5 times its size and we actually had white
caps and mini-rapids going on down there. Fortunately, we have
excellent drainage and no problems with flooding. There was a massive
amount of water going everywhere, but it was muddy and not very
appetizing. Anyway, it was preferable to the 2' of snow we had a
couple of weeks before and the monster icicles - we had one that was
about 4' long.

So, turn up the music, count your blessing and print, print, print!
And most of all, have fun ;-) Spring will come, I promise

Rock on,

What's everyone griping about, it was in the 80's here yesterday with
too much sunshine. :-)

Sharri -
I have actually spent the past three days in the studio - and have finished
(pretty much) TWO projects that are due real soon.
Cool...and yes I've been dancing with my press to some mellow rock-n-roll.
Print on!
Terry

We're getting 8 inches of snow tonight and I've just drawn a vampire
portrait onto cherry wood. That's what I like about bad weather, you
just want to do woodcuts.

Dave,

Thanks so much for your photos. I'm working on a new artist's book
which has twenty pages. Most of the sheets are 18" x 17 1/2"; some are
18" x 24". So that's twenty images, each of which has multiple blocks
and has to be editioned. A lot of paper. So anything that makes the
handling of the damp sheets more efficient is really helpful. I'll try
to put together something similar.

Send Message: To this poster

We've had some kind of a hiccup over at the server, and a couple of the
digests were scrambled yesterday.

If you are receiving the 'New Baren Digest (Text)' version, you missed
Volume 4667.
If you are receiving the 'New Baren Digest (HTML)' version, Volume 4666
may have appeared empty in your reader, although there is a text
alternative hidden inside it.

Gayle has fixed the archives, and all these messages can be viewed
properly there:
http://www.barenforum.org/archives/vol46/v46_4666.html
http://www.barenforum.org/archives/vol46/v46_4667.html

No idea what went wrong - either a glitch in my software, or a server
hiccup. The next Digest seems to have no problems, so perhaps it's all
OK now ... Apologies for the trouble!

Hey Dave!

Though hardly anyone outside of the field knows this.... The promises of
computers used to be called "smoke and mirrors" by those who created software or
set up systems... I swear, there must be an occasional electron that just zips
through the ether and Earth causing glitches. I've actually heard this as a
reason by those in the real know.

At any rate, thanks oodles for all that you do. You do it so well. Thesee
glitches are out of your control. The great thing about you is that not only do
you care but what you do is done so well. I'm sure that many of us are highly
appreciative of all that you do (that we know about!).

Best Wishes.

Send Message: To this poster



Sorry for not being woodblock related but read this anyway.....

Not being computer literate I nearly lost my mind trying to send out a mass email with constant contact, I finally had to beg my brother to do it for me. If you live in Portland, please come by on Sunday to the first Unitarian church on 12th and Salmon from 2:20-4:30 for cookies and coffee and to hear Paulann read some of her poetry. These prints were a collaboration between the two of us and great fun. The opening was cancelled and the date moved twice due to weather, so the show comes down a week after the party. An odd thing to be sure but better than nothing. These are solarplate etchings... printing the text was also a great challenge, a real learning experience. Isn't that what we say when we are finally done and don't want to repeat the process? ha
