It's hard not to explore a different way carve my lino plate. This is a sketch I've been wondering about for quite some time. Why was I doubt full?? I thought that it doesn't relate to my past "random pieces" which in the end were not so random. I showed my work to a fellow artist and she suggested to go in any direction, to explore. We believe that in the end, after the 52 prints are done, there should be some congruency.
Between kitchen disasters, back to school shopping, Summer crafty afternoons, and the boredom of my daughters, I finished carving this plate. I printed my A/P on tissue paper with my 9 yr. old daughter turning the wheel of the press. It still needs a few twitches; on the other hand I really like how tissue paper takes the ink.
