Happy Holidays ….
“May your blocks be flat.
your gravers sharp,
your inks smooth
your fingers clean,
and your prints as crisp as you desire … ‘
this prayer was bestowed on Linocut friends by Doug Haug, this morning with season’s greetings. I heartily agree and return the good wishes.
Along with every teacher I have encountered this year; this is indeed the mantra that we should breath before and during our work.
…. So what of the results no matter how we adhere to the rules there are failures and like our ugly child or scruffy dog, they have endearing features.
Like this one just failed from day one; but it remains a joy.
