Paleo Dragon-fly Woodcut

Working on the composition for my paleo dragon-fly woodcut for the a mini-print exchange.

Cobbled this together on Paint Shop Pro and PageMaker.  The lizard is from an etching:

I'm working on changing the wings 'cuz the print will be only 2.5"x3.5" and I want to play and not just copy the dern thing (it's an etching I did in printlab a few years ago).  I like how the image overflows the space.

Sure makes the image dinky tho.  I may rethink that.  Might call for a simpler design.

Garden Party Art Show

Light, Paint, Ink & Clay.  Our second Garden Party Art Show.  We had such a good time with the first one we've decided to do it again - and add a potter to the mix.  It's scheduled for Sun., Oct. 1.  Hopefully we'll have as nice a day as last year's show.

I've been working on the postcard.  This is what I've got so far:

Tony's photography, Tina's watercolor and oil paintings, Jim & Pat's pottery and my woodcut prints and tapestry pieces.  Should be a fun show.
