Thanks Mindy for bringing up the parrot, I only need a small excuse
to repeat my message of yesterday.

AND.... it might be a nice act of friendship if you decided to have a
look at Dave's e-book.

It's all about woodblock printmaking!

It will cost you $7.50. You will be astounded by the beautiful
You will learn. You will make better prints.

I was a little slow to accept the fact that the book works by using a
piece of software, Acrobat Reader 9
You can download the reader for free here (if you can't do it, just
ask a kid to help you)

Just tick all the boxes and click your way to a fun read with audio
bites and video clips. Do yourself a favour!

'North Juneau Roof' ~ 'Techo en el norte de Juneau'
Woodcut ~ Grabado en Madera
8.25" x 5.25" ~ 21 cm x 13.5 cm
Edition/edicion: 50

My newest Alaskan inspired print actually came from a roof in downtown Juneau but this woodcut is part of a series of cardinal directions so the title contains the word 'north'. This, for me traveling from Puerto Rico, is very North. I might not have noticed this salmon weather vane but there was one of Alaska's many ravens sitting below it. What could be more iconic for Alaska than a salmon and raven. In fact, I have another woodcut in the works... a raven (which I must have been in another life).


El grabado mas recien mio actualmente viene de un techo en el centro del pueblo de Juneau (Alaska) pero, como este grabado es parte de una serie de las direcciones cardinales, el titlo contiene la palabra 'norte'. Este, para mi viajando de Puerto Rico, es sumamente norte. Quizas no hubiera visto esta veleta de un salmon pero habia un cuervo sentado abajo. Que pudiera ser icono para Alaska que un salmon y un cuervo. En realidad, estoy cortando otro grabado en madera... un cuervo (que pienso que fuera en otra vida).

Subject: Brown-eyed Susans--Changing Seasons #2

5" X 7" cherrywood block print on Stonehenge paper with Graphic Chemical vine black ink.

Winter may have arrived in other places, but at my house the weather hasn't made up its mind about which season we are in. One week it is the middle of summer and 107 degrees, and the next week the nights are close to freezing. The calendulas are blooming like it is the beginning of spring while the Brown-eyed Susans are wondering if they should keep up with their neighbors or be finished for the year.
