Woodblock progress

A blissful art day/night, with a surprise visit by Rabbit Rengetsu by my window.

First woodblock into the New World.

Attempting woodblock 'again'. Will post photos of my progress along the way for this piece.

Hopefully this woodblock image will lead to another, and together we might inspire each other with a new message for this 'New World After 2012'.

Happy New Year!

Enso print begins

Today I started transferring my 4 ft. x 4 ft. enso painting (zen circle) to the woodblock at our new Tiger Lily Press studio. I painted it with a very large chinese ink brush. I will experiment by printing it onto canvas and also silk. Photo credit (of me) taken by Susan Naylor at Tiger Lily Press, Cincinnati, Ohio.

My first experience printing an oil-based print (and probably my last since I'm a water-based girl) unless I have another opportunity to participate in a Tiger Lily Press calendar. Printed in August 2010.
