Carving Images

Back in the studio 
carving the images for
Monster Series
Finished carving her yesterday at 2 am.  
I like sketching images
in my notebook before
making an outline on the 
linoleum block. For me,
the process is very organic 
and my final carving doesn't
exactly look like my sketch.
A few of my carving tools.
Marke Kirschen aka "the two cherries" 
carving tools are great.  They are easy
to hold and fit perfectly in my palm.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
