Daisies Lino Block
I started carving a lino block today of some English Daisies that I recently bought to plant in my garden. (I haven't yet, because it snowed yesterday...but I think this winter stuff is almost over) I haven't finished carving it quite yet, but you can see the intention of the design. I think I will print some cards and mini prints for my Etsy shop when I get to it. I have an enormous amount of freelance work due in the middle of the week, so hopefully I can find a little extra time to print a few.
Meanwhile, today, all the snow melted so I started some little seedlings of poppies, columbine along with some others. I brought them inside for the night, and put them by the deck window so that they get some sun. I still don't trust the weather or all the hungry animals. I love seeing the sprouts peek up through the soil for the very first time. It's satisfying. Just like making art.
