Another window

One of the other media that I work in is printmaking—well, not so much since fabric has taken over my life. This is a linocut that I made in 1996, which is, as I think about it, probably the last print on paper that I made, so maybe I'm not really a printmaker anymore. A window. I have a tendency to make things more complicated than they need to be, so I am still happy with the simplicity of this window. I considered printing it on fabric to use in the window theme piece, but it would take me two months to find the block I'm afraid.

Terry, that is such a cool print. I've been looking at print making more and more lately, and seen some demonstrations of it and I really like it. The Japanese seem to have perfected it.

Very pretty. :-) Yours seems to have a bit of the asian aesthetic Karen mentioned. Printing and cloth seem to go together well.

Oh, that's a beautiful print. I'm sure it would be wonderful on fabric.

I do love the simplicity of your print. A faster method might be to scan the print then print it on fabric, but I am sure you have already considered that option.
The challenge this time sound most intriguing.
