Are You Recording?

Woodcut on sheet music.

 I was in an old school/ community art center this summer ( I used to take piano lessons there)  and heard this fabulous blues-rock guitar playing.  I followed the music and found this guy in a classroom playing away.  In haste, I tried to snap a few stolen photographs on my iphone when he looked over at the door.  I motioned to my phone as if to say, "Is this ok?"  He thought I was recording him playing... but assured him it was just a few shots I was after.  So, he invited me in...  asked a few more times if I had done an audio recording - because he felt he was making so many mistakes and did not want it remembered!  Too funny.  After explaining I'm an artist and also play guitar, etc. he was finally convinced I was harmless:)  We chatted for quite a while as I took a lot of photographs.  Turns out he teaches guitar there... I need to send him one of these!

Checkerboard

Revisiting some old photographs lately, here's a hand sewn quilt made of linen.   I added some woodblocks  printed on linen.  Now, if only it would finish itself:)

The Wheat Field

Here's a woodcut of a little girl walking in tall wheat... out on the Palouse.  I printed it on very old violin sheet music.  A good harvest/autumn kind of feel to it, I think. 

It is 'birthday season' in our family.  Lots of cakes to bake and long walks to take.  The etsy shop got updated with many new prints - which has been a long time coming:)  MOre photographs over at my Flickr if you're in the mood.  Have a great Wednesday...
