At Last

My new toy
With some tuition I have overcome my fear of body mutilation from electrical tools, (probably due to watching a technician almost saw his thumb off on an electric saw at college) and have embarked on a new series of woodcuts YEY.

So, the title: Beach Spirits....a project and body of work initiated in the beginning with my Finnish mentee, Emmi

and the inspiration:

bit of help from Madeleine to set the press up for printing a woodcut, it is really an etching press

the woodcut:

When the light is good I will post my first embossment from this, really pleased it's looking really great.
