I've been bouncing back and forth between doing computer work to put the calendars together and working on final prints for my England show at Playhouse on the Square in November and December. These are just snaps of them. When I get a chance I'll have them scanned in (they're too big for my home scanner), but it will give you an idea of what I've been working on.
It feels nice to sign and date a whole stack of work (I've also been scanning in all the England watercolors) and realize just how much work I've done over the last few months.
This one was a problem child. I originally planned a color block for underneath, but somehow the carving got too offset. A friend on FB suggested just printing the key block since it's so graphic. Getting the tree dark surrounded by light sky and not clogging up all the small bits made this one quite tricky to print, but I got a number of good ones in the end. They'll all dry while I'm out of town next week and be ready to be packaged up or mounted when I get home.
