It wasn't until I did the first printing that it reminded me of zebra stripes. I will be experimenting with this same design with other colors, different papers and also coming up with other designs. Fancier ones.

I remember doing lino block printing in high school and thought it was pretty neat back then, but forgot about it. Recently I discovered it again and bought a starter kit to see if it was something that I wanted to pursue more. If you are unfamiliar with lino block printing please click here for more info. That will do a better job of explaining it. Ok so for a few days I thought really hard of what my first design would be. I almost lost sleep over it. Well the first two ideas were a no go so then I said the hay with it and started drawing lines on the lino block and ended up with just a simple design. Nothing fancy here, but I like it and now yes I'm hooked.

My beagle Lenny and his funny nose.
Look at the curve of that thing. You could go skiing off of it.
No he wasn't munching on his leg, he just had his mouth resting on it and in return made his nose all goofy looking. Silly dog.

More beach photos.
Anybody lose a flip flop?
This was inside the lobby of the hotel we stayed at.
Now here is a peek at some wood brooches I'm working on. The one in the back is sketched up waiting to be painted and the others are almost done. That ghost is scaring me.

Hey everyone. Hope you are having a nice weekend. I have two new 3 x 3 inch mini canvas paintings to show you. Check them out.
I wonder how the view is from that tiny house.
In my last post I mentioned getting more art supplies. Well I picked up more canvases in the same size shown above and also some smaller ones. Oh and got some easels to go with them and some new paint. It all makes me happy.
But before I work on the canvases I'm going to make some painted brooches and will post pictures of them sometime.

That would be 1 painting and 2 Dachshund art dolls.
Awww Dachshund found a heart. 3 x 3 inch canvas painting with easel.
Clay Dachshund art dolls.
I started these two cuties a while ago and they were begging me to finish them.
I might be going on an art supply run sometime today. Happy day!
Do you get excited about getting new supplies?

Oh how I love those two words. Photos and art.
Here are a few, ok only 3, photos from my recent trip to the beach. I took so many photos and it's hard to pick the ones to show here. These caught my eye right away. I'll post more soon.
I hope this Dachshund can hold onto that pumpkin with those tiny paws.
