Well, here it is. Finished up today so I can fly off to Cincinnati tomorrow with a clear plate. Going to visit my Dad! I tried using a new product on this image, not linoleum but gomuban from McClain's. I really liked how easy it was to cut and it held fine lines great. I also made one mistake in cutting and was able to Elmer's Glue it back in place. It went by quickly which just encourages me to do it again. I have two more in the pipeline, of more sea creatures. Watch this space, as they say.
It has been a mild spring and the front patio is blooming all sorts of beautiful flowers. It is wonderful to come home to this after an exhausting day in the studio...Life is good.
