Two in Steve's

1) "Night Fishing" after "Shack Medicine" by Thomas Wood
2) "The Kiss that Never Happened.

Midas's wife looks more gold in the book than in the scan. (And didn't come out as good as I'd hoped, sorry)

So beautiful Mary - I really love the Night Fishing especially. It reminds me of a great song by R.E.M. (of the same title).

Oh, wait, that was "Night Swimming" - it's been years I guess.

Thanks so much, Steve. I like the night fishing better too.

I like night swimming, too, hmmm.

OOps! You and a few others may have inadvertently seen two sketches from the Other group which I accidentally posted--but since removed.

Charming and captivating pics - the big fish on the roof, and the bird - nice details. I caught a bit of night once - it was thiiiiiis big!

excellent - are you aiming for a linocut with the first one?

Andrea said...

That Night Fishing is awesome! Bravo Mary

Thanks so much! YAY! Thank you all.

A bit of sad news. The piece opposite Night Fishing bled on it a little--I tried to repair it, but it's not as clean.

I didn't realize the piece was still wet and I turned the age to work ont he next piece. WAHN! So SORRY!

If I were to do a linocut on a piece that complex, I would have to have a hell of a big LINO!

It would be fun to try though!
