Printing again

It has been ages since I've block printed.  Every time I do I love it...duh...maybe I should print more often.

A local person, who had seen my work at Shoreline Arts Trail a couple of years ago, remembered that he liked my art quilts.  Then he bought a new home and in conversation with mutual friends, my name surfaced :^)

He called and asked if I took commissions...more grins.

After a visit to my studio, he zeroed in on warm autumn colors and a couple of my earlier works specifically.  However, they were not the orientation that he wanted.  He wanted long and narrow for a stairwell.  I decided it would be best if I saw the space myself and after a visit with him...we decided he really needed TWO pieces...grinning again.

He liked the black printed trees in the original work...about 8" in height.

As luck would have it, one of my blocks that I carved years ago was damaged.  Another would have to be carved :^)  This time a taller tree.

What fun!  I've combined it with a smaller carving that I also made years ago.

I really hope he likes it!  He thought I might have them ready in two weeks....oh, maybe...maybe, not.  But that's what I'm working on.
