printmaking – apple

Every year we celebrate Art All Night in Pittsburgh by making new work and taking it to show. Today I made a 3-in by 4-in linoleum block print. Sketched, carved, and printed. My husband was printing too, and he had the great idea to take a table into the back yard, so that we could work there. We ignored the dandelions and the ankle-high grass, and before long, our hands were inky and the lawn chairs were filled with prints drying in the sun. Perfect way to let late morning evolve into afternoon.

We dropped our work off before the deadline, went home for some supper, and returned to see the exhibition.
