I love the cardinal in the winter woods ! Did you carve this ? It looks like a litho print ! Beautiful !Taking a breather in the winter wood...ah, I needed that !
Each of your posts inspires me to explore conscious awareness on new levels. I wonder if you have ever read any of Nick Bantock's books from the Griffen & Sabine series? I believe you would appreciate how he has compiled graphic art design in the correspondence between his protagonists and other characters.The creative letters are included within the books.
Hi KIm, yes, I carved these out of that really great easy to carve "artist block" rubber material that is a lot like a white eraser. You find it in the art supply store by the linoleum print supplies. it's great stuff!Thanks Liara, Not only am I very familiar and a big fan of Nick's work, I was lucky enough to do a week long workshop with him a few years ago! He's an inspiring teacher and artist - I highly recommend his workshops!!
wonderful woodsy night scene...aahhhh...you found Nick's workshop location, his own incredible studio...looks like some fabulous digs to visit, no?
maaaaarvelouslove the way this evokes so much feeling..loss...fear....despairbeautiful xx
Yes D,After you told me about Nick's new digs, I went to his website to see! Thanks for letting me know. I'm going to miss having him come here to NY though :)Thanks Caf, yes there is definitely a mix for me in this one...

Karin, this is very nice. I can't believe you carved all this. Impressive. I like it very much.
I love the little splash of red in the darkness. Beautiful pages!
Karin, I had no idea Nick did workshops. His juxtaposition work is very clever. I am pleased to learn you have already connecetd with such a kindred, creative spirit. We can always learn from each other, provided we remain open to opportunities.
Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
