After a brief hiatus, I am back. We will consider those two weeks of April as a hiccup, a stumble on the way to a new horizon.
I have new office space and have had to rethink my carving/printing space, mentally and physically. New windows, new sunlight, new systems.
I wanted to try a color blend and this design seemed to lend itself nicely to a bit of experimentation. It turned out to be much easier than I expected. The inks kept to themselves nicely. I let alignment go more than my usual perfectionism allows. I definitely want to try this again.
