I ditto Ellen's question, especially since a lot of these blogs don't have subscription services.

It looks as if everything stopped on February 27. Some blogs have had
several updates since then. I miss them, too.

OK gang, about the blog notifications ...

There has indeed been a bit of a glitch; a few days ago, on request, I
added a new entry to the list of blogs that gets parsed every night,
but that one turned out to have a malformed feed that was crashing my
program. I've pulled it off the list, and things should be back to
normal from tomorrow.

Things in the RSS/Atom/syndication world are continually changing, and
there is a limit to how much time I can spend playing with this thing
to try and keep on top of it all ...

(still gamely plugging away at scroll printing ... hopefully only a
couple more weeks, and they should all be done ...)

There are so many different techniques for making marks in printmaking, even just in relief printmaking that we concentrate on here, that it makes the medium very interesting. For example, you can do single block, chine colle, or multiple block, with different kinds of registration techniques, different inks, different papers, white line cutting where the cuts separte the color areas, or reduction blocks, and you can do light ink on top of dark, or dark on light, it just goes on forever. It's sooooo interesting.

Right now I am trying to decide whether to do a new print of my dog for the next exchange, or complete an edition of prints of Yosemite that I started years ago. They are multi-block real hanga prints made with water plus pigment inks brushed on the basswood blocks. For some reason I only have about 25. I need at least 31 for the edition, so I will have to try to match the paper and the colors, which will be a challenge. I don't know who is running this exchange. I have not received any reminders yet. I hope I am not already late with my print.

I was not able to go to the CA Society of Printmakers annual meeting yesterday because I was in training for tutoring little kids. But it looks like that might not work out after all. I guess I am too old or too fat or too easily discouraged. Too bad I don't have enough income just to sit back and make prints. Seems like there must be some way I could manage that! If I was as smart and pretty as Marilyn, maybe I could get my husband to take me with him when he goes road racing in Baja. And I would just take my little woodblock kit with me. And then I would just be there as a decoration for him when he needed me. Alas, I think there is no hope for that at all.
