I forgot my camera when we went to Santa Fe last week but Jan remembered hers. We saw a great SAQA show in the roundhouse and everyone picked their favorite quilt. There were 6 of us, and there were 6 different favorites!
Jan picked La Memoria del Cerro Grande by Susan Rojas
Karen picked Garden of Dyer's Delight by Colleen Sizemore
Sandy picked Desert Prickly Poppy by Yadi Flannery

Poppies #2 (the good copy)
Aboriginal #1, probably my best print.
The aboriginal, poppies and the woodcut will probably all be reductive prints.
Carol Sanchez is an excellent instructor, and I LOVE this class!

After my busy week, I stayed at home today and worked on homework for the printing class that I am taking. After some consideration, I decided to pass on the woodcut portion, and concentrate on lino for now. I had a hard time controlling my cuts on the wood (I know that I did not have the right tools at home for that... I could not use the speedball cutters, as I could not control where my lines ended. And I will be busy enough on the lino. Here are two preliminary lino cuts (poppies are inspired by Linda and Laura Kemshall's book The Painted Quilt)I have decided that this free form design looks aboriginal.
Both of them are rather hard to see, as I have not pulled a proof print yet.
I also cut a speedball rubber with a dragonfly motif.

see more crazy cat pics
I get an email every day with the new posts, and some I just can't resist!
Spent the day in a workshop with my friend Pamela, and it was a very good experience. I am taking tomorrow off, as I have had some non-work function almost every day this week! A lazy day will do me good. Of course, I have some homework for the Carol Sanchez Relief Printing class, so it will not be a totally lazy day.
