Hot, hot, hot

It was 43 yesterday and little relief over night. While on the other side of the world........?So I decided to sit in the cool under the fan and work on a book for our group meeting next week. I used inks and a little stitching, I am now going to put some bleach on some and draw on more it will follow 'Murphy's Law' I will decorate until the final hour! How lovely it is to get back to colour (for a minute) in a break from printing for my course.Here is one of the last lino cuts I did on Masks. I have such a problem with the negative and positive spaces, however I guess it will come in time.

I find that linocut very intriguing, especially the way the strands of hair echo the steps.

And your colors in the top images dazzle as always.

The positive and negative spaces look better than what I could do Janette. In fact I haven't even explored positive and negative spaces yet.

Great to see you working in colour again Janette, this project looks very intriguing.

I know what you mean about the negative and positive spaces...but your lino cuts look fantastic!

Wonderful journal pages. I just love your use of colour. Look forward to seeing more of them soon.

Sounds like you are well and truly settled into your new home in the city.

Best wishes for 2010 and I hope we can catch up again this year sometime.
