First woodblock prints of the year

Woodblock prints are back, my first of the year actually! Not that I am anywhere near done with collaging and gocco. In fact I made a collage that I am quite proud of just last night. But I had a chunk of time and was in the mood so I made about ten prints. Not a lot for me but it was what I was feeling. The peacock is my favorite.

I am going to try and do my 365 Sketch of the day tonight, but I won't beat myself up if I don't get to it. I am taking a break from reorganizing my work and cleaning my studio. You see I have a new work desk coming in and I need to be ready for it. And it is one of those situations where it is going to get worse before it gets better. This is my big birthday gift from my husband. It is a huge deal because my current cheapo Craigslist desk is on its last legs quite literally. It is unstable and I am constantly having to readjust the leg screws and an unstable desk for carving is not safe. Especially one that is piled high with stuff. Ikea has a smaller but great desk for me.

I'm looking forward to having it set up, but not looking forward to getting it set up.

More new work coming, check back often as I will be trying to put new stuff up in my shop at lease twice a day this week.
