This'll give me another chance at the Early Birds theme.  ;-]

Hm, so should I make the Leftovers IV prints from leftover paper from this project?

Early Birds

Oh I'm jazzed!

I have a theme I want to explore:  early birds, in the style of my paleo mythos (i.e., imaginary).  I want to regress birds back to dinosaurs.  Bright, freathery, feisty dino-birds.  8-]

I envision a backyard garden scene, with kids and cats and dogs and field mice, all interacting with early birds.  More cute than threatening (except maybe to the field mice), rather like a small dog or a cat.  (Or a dragonette, but that's another theme...)  ;- ]

I'm collecting pics to play with, but nothing is cobbled together yet.  Stay tuned!

Leftovers IV

Signed up for Leftovers IV print exchange.  The last couple times I've done long and thin pieces, because that's the size and shape of most of my left over pieces of paper.  But I'm thinking this time I'll make something more postcard or notecard size.  Even artist trading card size.  Something small.

I have a number of smallish blocks from a grab bag order of odd blocks from McClain's some time back.  

Don't have my subject yet, tho on another life line I'm exploring the archaic Southwest.  Maybe something petroglyph-like.  That would play into my general paleo mythos themed pieces.

That's a definite maybe.  ;- p
