Carving lino and wood!

This will be an interesting experiment!  I have cut 3, 12 x 12 linos!  My idea is that they will work as a unit (that would be a 3 foot x 1 foot print and 3  12" x 12" stand alone prints!).  The photo is the lino cuts!  I'm really nervous about the printing!  I will have to get the registration just so!

Please wish me luck!  I'll print on Saturday-I hope!

Pomegranates in wood!  I will print this as well!

I have no idea why I started to carve again but that is what the muse says I will do!  She seems to know what I should be doing!  I will just go with the flow.  I will not inflict on you the photo of the left thumb - too much blood where the carving tool paid a visit!

these are wonderful, Sally!!!! I'm so impressed with your artistic abilities!!! I can't do the lino cut work or wood. Too hard on this old RA hands...but give me rubber and I'm in! Can't wait to see your prints!!!!

These are so beautifully done. I cant do such fine work but the arthritic hands only allow me to use easy cut these days, snd that doesnt allow such fine work. I am sure the prints will be beautiful.

Hi, Sally. Your linocuts are interesting by themselves. I'll be especially interested in seeing your pomegranate prints since I have a pomegranate tree quilt growing in my studio.
best, nadia
