Wow! I'm Google-able!

Thank you Annie for posting this. I hadn't seen the article or any jury comments. The awards were the same day of my mom's funeral. Bittersweet.

I did get to go see the show this week and it is amazing. There are so many techniques represented and so well done. The show now travels to other galleries around the state for the next year. I am so honored and stunned to be part of it.

Oh- the money is already spent. I ordered a big box of shina and another of paper before the Christmas shipping season!

** Not woodblock **

Since Julio mentioned Tamarind, I thought others might be interested to
know that my wife and I visited lithographer Ernest DeSoto last week and
got a tour of his astounding private collection, including many works he
printed for Jose Luis Cuevas and Rufino Tamayo. He showed us a video of
a fascinating interview of Cuevas and himself at Tamarind in the 70s.
It was an opportunity that popped out of nowhere through one of my
wife's weaving buddies.

Rufino Tamayo is one of my favorites!

Subject: Back to some 'real' carving!
Posted by: Dave Bull

With the first batch of the Forest in Winter print now done (112 sheets), and 87 of them out the door, it's time to clean up the printing bench, and get the carving tools out. There are only a few weeks left in the year, and I've got to get the New Year print done first, before resuming printing work on the second half of this edition.

It's such a pleasure to be carving something with nice curves and lines for a change!

I'm not going to show the entire image yet of course - you'll have to wait until January 1st to see that - but people who have read/listened to the David's Choice eBook that I issued last month may perhaps be able to put 2+2 together ... looking at these little snapshots, and thinking about some of the comments I made on one of the prints in the book ...

This next picture shows how clear the image on the block can become when using thin gampi paper for the hanshita.

The area at the upper right is the face-down gampi; below that is an area where I have rubbed lightly with a slightly moistened finger, to remove most of the body of the paper, leaving just the image lines. It just doesn't get any clearer than this!

Subject: Christmas Block
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

Block in progress -- mirror image scan. This'll be the Schuyler House Christmas card. I put the castle on one of the mugs. And I put a sleeping cat on the hearth for the absent Kitty (who worked for Schuyler House).
