Studio and Linocut updates

This past summer I rearranged my studio so that I could have a standing work table and a sitting work table. The problem was my sitting work table is long with lots of space. That space invariably attracted a messy chaos of stuff which left me fighting off the mess while trying to be creative at the same time.

I decided to bring the table from our patio inside. With the shorter days, we're no longer eating dinner outside. So now I have one short table, one long table and one tall table.

working tables, one for printing, drawing etc,  and the other for just printed or wip's

My brilliant moment came when I decided the long table will always be my messy table. I can organize what's on the messy table when I feel like it and not when I am trying to work out an idea!

This past week I spent a couple of days measuring and cutting rice paper followed by printing and more printing. Here's a taste of what I've been up to this week.

The birds are available in my tictail shop, and I'll have the rest of the linocuts available within the next few days.

I had a productive week and hope you had a good week too.
