....this is for my mother, who never comments, but who nevertheless wants to see my work on her screen....
These are all three-color reduction linoprints. I had never imagined that I would get so into these. I'm not normally a "color" person, but I am fascinated by this technique, and am slowly learning how to do it.
At the moment, I am more interested in the marks than anything, and have started several more which I will post when I am done.

I was also making a lot of drawings with a gouache resist and India ink technique. Here are some of THOSE--wow, this kindof seems like a lot, but that's what I get for not posting for an entire month.

These are my drawing practice (I'd say "warm-up" if I continued on with something else) that I can do in the middle of the day to help myself stay sane.
These first two were drawn with the reference photo upside down--a most excellent right-brain exercise (even though the whole right/left brain thing has been scientifically debunked).
The next two were essentially blind contour drawings, with pencil, that were then rendered as realistically as possible.
