this piece, but taken to another level. The background pattern would be a lot more varied and detailed with many subtle layers overlapping. With the figure tying it all together.
Now getting to work on this is hard for me right now. I have all these projects that I should print and finish up, but my mind has already moved on to this. But I feel bad about not finishing things so I end up doing nothing except developing this idea more. Because I want it to be perfect. The pattern block(s) are shaping up to be very large and complex. The idea is that I will probably do one on the largest piece of wood that I have (something like 26"x32") so that I have room to grow with the block and can use various parts of it with my smaller prints. But it will take a long time to carve. I haven't finished a piece in almost two months. I used to make 50+ in a month.
