Ex Libris prints

"In conjunction with the Guenzel Gallery exhibition, Out of the Woods
join us for a free print fair with participating artist Linda Kelen 
and create a small woodblock print. 
All materials provided."
 It's happening this coming Saturday in Fish Creek...
Door County, Wisconsin...
so I've been cutting wood and printing the blocks as fast as I can 
to show what's possible to do in a short amount of time. 
I'm just using 1/4" and 3/8th inch Shina Plywood.
I'll post them here as I finish them.
An ExLibris print 
seems (to me) to be a perfect end goal 
for whomever might want to pick up a knife.
Personalization possible!
 So.....we'll see what happens.

Woodprints postings

There is only so much time,
and I seem to have managed to get myself into more activities 
than planetary time allows.

Having neglected this blog for reasons unknown,
since I have been actively cutting and printing woodblocks,
I'll begin by showing you what I did last night,
and work backward for a bit.

Snapped with my cell phone,
this is one of the 4" x 6" woodblocks I cut it generate some interest in a public woodprint workshop I'm involved in at the Peninsula School of Art in conjunction with a fine woodprint show they are readying for.
I'll have more information soon.
This next one will be printed sometime this afternoon:
4"x6" block to be printed next.
The whiteline wood print completed last week.
White line wood print in progress
Whiteline woodprint done, still attached to block
Whiteline woodprint done.
I'll do my best to keep this a bit more up to date....
in the mean time, my blog ARTINGS gets a little more attention.
