Back To Something Familiar

Got a design all drawn out and ready to carve for my first lino carving in over a year. I’m excited and a bit nervous. Linoblocks are harder to carve compared to erasers so it’s easier to wind up with gouged hands and bloody fingers, so I’m hoping I’m not too rusty. But I’m excited because, well, I’m back to something familiar. With patience and a steady hand, I know how this will turn out. It’s good to step out of your comfort zone and try something different, like with the stamp carving, but it also feels good to come back to something you know. There’s nothing wrong with staying in your zone.

…now, if I could just come up with a name for this piece. Any suggestions would be appreciated. 😌

          1. Nice….of course linocut. Brilliant. So you would sand the linoleum a bit so it would take the paint…on parts of Lino not etched into? Or do you concentrate on the incised lines? Just curious…
