52 Weeks of Printmaking: An Invitation from Moscow, Russia

Everyone who closely follows my work knows that sometimes I use live models.
Test print of a hand carved linocut
These models are usually stage actors or appear on television and in movies.  
I draw directly on the linoleum block before carving it.
So imagine my surprise when a casual conversation with a Russian actress turned into a portrait and an invitation to Moscow.  
I printed on linen with sparkling rhinestones.
I printed the final image on linen textile with dazzling rhinestones.  In person, these rhinestones were shining like diamonds, however, my camera couldn't capture their brilliance.

Walking through Clouds

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