Heads up for the 2011-Year of the Rabbit exchange -
The card I sent to Peri Howard in Memphis, TN was returned as
"Moved-Vacant-Not Forwardable". People who haven't sent cards yet
might want to wait for another address. Peri, if you have a new
address, I'll send it there - hope you're ok!

I've been delighted by the cards that have arrived! This is such a
special thing to take part in. Wish I could do more exchanges - maybe
when I retire from the day job!

Sharri, I think your sketch looks AMAZING! What a fantastic story, too!
I'd never heard that one!

Here is part of the poem (by A.E. Housman) that is inspiration for my
print, which is going to represent Hermes (the god of the poem) -- I only
have sketchy sketches right now, but I'll try to post something
substantial soon (you can read the complete poem at


The Merry Guide by A.E. Housman

Once in the wind of morning
I ranged the thymy wold;
The world-wide air was azure
And all the brooks ran gold.

There through the dews beside me
Behold a youth that trod,
With feathered cap on forehead,
And poised a golden rod.

And midst the fluttering legion
Of all that ever died
I follow, and before us
Goes the delightful guide,

With lips that brim with laughter
But never once respond,
And feet that fly on feathers,
And serpent-circled wand.

Subject: Psalm 22
Posted by: Daniel L. Dew

Seems like it has been forever. But the day is finally here. A new post!

Here is the latest in the series, possibly one of my most passionate and powerful.

You be the judge:

When I started think of the image to use for this Psalm, I was tossed: to do an image of Christ or an image of a mystery man? Or both?

So, I settled on a self-portrait of myself. I also changed up my style a little, looking to portray a more emotional image than a pictorial image.

I cannot tell you the amount of times or times I have
felt this way, I do not have enough fingers or toes to count. Too many nights have been spent anguishing over Hannah, the economy, my life and so many other issues.

I used pine wood for the block. Just the plain old cheap stuff from my neighborhood Home Depot.
Paper is the same Zerkal and ink my faithful Graphic Chemical WS Black, which is no longer available and I am out of!

Oh well.

Nothing too special about the decorative initial or illumination, other than trying to make them fit together with this extra long Psalm.
