Printing Death Valley


 
I believe the last time I was carving out linoleum and making block prints was when I was student.  Maybe it was the visible geologic time machine of Death Valley that inspired me after last weekend’s trip to the desert.  This one comes from a long morning hike way back into Mosaic Canyon – one of my favorite places in the national park.

The Book is a Friend



Sometimes when you make and send mail art you have to accept that it just might not get there.  All that was left of this copy of Sinclair Lewis’s Main Street, was the cover.  That has been converted into a postcard with obsessively hand-painted bookshelves on the back – it was kind of addictive painting those.   Now, let’s hope it makes it to Russia.
