It took a good bit longer than I expected to master the new press and pulling multi-colored blocks, but I finally have finished copies of several different prints. The first is Overton Park, the first one I started on. It's my favorite tree in that park and a daily haunt of mine.
Below is the White River in Arkansas. It's one of Elmore's and my favorite getaways. We take the kayaks over, sit on the upstairs porch of the fabulous River View Hotel, and relax. It's lovely, so the White River definitely has to be in this series of my special places.
I've got two more blocks finished and ready to print, but first I'm off to spend a week at Cape May, New Jersey. A hotel group is flying me up to do watercolors of their hotels, so I'm looking forward to a week painting at the beach.
