I wonder if I am the only one who has this sort of thing happen? I
have not been carving, been "writing", painting, drawing and finishing
printing my year of the tiger. It must have been in the late morning
type of sleep, when I had this "dream". I had this block that I was
banging on, chipping out pieces. Some one came by and said I was doing
it wrong, that I was supposed to be doing it under water. I continued
to chip away and as I started to wake up I thought I could fill the
"holes" with, first something like the "lost wax process" and than
wet paper. No I could emboss them, but what about the color? I could
print one color and than chip out and print another color and than I
could use stencils to get 2 more colors. the image was clear, it was
my little daisy in the pot out front. Guess now it is down to my wood
storage, will let everyone know how this "new" project evolves. Today
was not set aside for carving, now it sure is! Following my
subconscious into the next phase.

Subject: Piles to Files
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

It must be spring cleaning or something.  I've decided to organize my studio, starting with the piles of prints I have all over the place.  I swear I've got about two feet of prints all tolled.

I went thru every piece and made an inventory of each unique print.  Are you ready for this?  I have 106 separate woodcuts, etchings and monoprints!  That doesn't count multiples and variations either.  Wow.

Now I'm putting them in a gimungous plastic tub (I wish it weren't plastic, but it's the only thing I could find that would hold 11"x15" prints, of which I have a number).  I only have one print larger and I can solve that easily by framing it and hanging it on the wall.  ;- j  I don't want to put the lid on tho.  Maybe I'll drape a cloth over the top. 

I'm still filing but I'll be done soon.  Then I'll have to do some actual art.  ;- ]
