Umi's Tears

Messing about with the cartoon today.  Tilted dragon eye, smaller wave reflected in eyeball.  I can't help thinking I'm displacing tho.  I'd better get the cartoon transfered and get to carving soon.

Getting Ready to Carve

Paper and wood ordered from McClains.  Birch block sanded and stained.  Rough cartoon, but good to go.  If it's all worked out ahead of time I get bored.  The fun is in the carving.  Getting ready to have fun.  ;-]

The Painter's Keys

A pleasant surprise.  8-]

I occasionally read an artist's blog, The Painter's Keys, by Robert Genn. I popped in the other day and discovered him talking about "unschooling," the concept developed by John Holt, an educational philosopher. My friend Kim introduced us to his newsletter and we became aficionados. So I fired off a comment to the blog and lo and behold, I'm the first of the accompanying comments. With a pic of my latest woodcut! I'm jazzed.
