I hope everyone has fun at the summit. I just wanted to pop in and
introduce myself a tiny bit; I live in NYC. I've been lurking for a very
long time on this list, and enjoying everyone's prints. I have done a few
prints myself, and taken a course on Japanese woodblock printing twice; so
I'm very much a beginner. But I am hoping to put more time into learning
this year. Thanks for letting me "lurk"! :)

Dave your little video looked awesome on my little hd laptop. I can't wait
till I figure out how to get the internet up on my new blue ray player so I
can see it in 55" hd...I"ll have to give a look-see at 3-d as well just to
see how well the 2d to 3d feature works on internet files...its worked
amazingingly on everything else so far and seeing your masterful prints
larger than life in 3d is too tempting to resist!

A few years ago, a film crew spent a day in my workroom catching scenes of the carving and printing work. A 'mini' film based on those clips is on YouTube here

Subject: Abraham and the Family Feud
Posted by: Annie B

After The Expulsion of Ishmael and His Mother by Gustave Doré

And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. Genesis 21:14

The story of Abraham and his sons is one of those long and winding soap-opera kinds of Bible stories. Abraham, who we might call the first monotheist, was married to Sarah who was barren. Sarah, knowing that 86-year-old Abraham longed for a son, offered her servant Hagar to Abraham as a surrogate and Hagar gave birth to Abraham's first son, Ishmael.

Thirteen years later, Sarah became pregnant and gave birth to Abraham's second son, Isaac. After the birth, Sarah became angry and jealous of Hagar and Ishmael and she said to Abraham, "Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac." Abraham reluctantly did so after God promised him that both of his sons would be made into great nations.

Thus began what Bruce Feiler, author of Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths calls "the greatest family feud in the history of the world and the defining feud of our time." Isaac would become the father of Jacob, . . .

Subject: When the cleanup takes longer than the printing...
Posted by: Sherrie Y

I did, indeed, manage to print all 18 linocut icons on Saturday. The printing itself didn't take too long, but cleaning 18 little blocks sure did! Ooph. It took the wind out of my sails in a big way, and I spent the rest of the day in a rocking chair with my nose in a book. Time to abandon the Wonder Woman persona. I'm reasonably happy with most of the images, although there are one or two
