Here Comes Another

Here comes another New Year. Hot on the heels of the Solar is the Lunar New Year on the 26th of this month. This year will be the year of the Earth Ox and I just finished the prints that will become cards; 43 oxen pressed and teased from wood, ink, water and paper. A surprising percentage are without gross error, just a few are not even fit to go to my most elderly and dim sighted relatives. Some will be put up for sale on my Etsy site, both as cards and matted prints.

Happy Solar New Year to one and all.

Happy Solar New Year!! We celebrate the Lunar New Year too and I'm getting a week and a half off from work then, woo hoo!!

The prints look good. Less error means you're getting really good at this! Do you have pictures of the wood blocks? A little curious over how they look :D

Beautiful, just beautiful! (Didn't really know an ox could be beautiful, but somehow you've done it!)

Does a bull year bring a bull market? One can only hope. I should send one to my financial adviser.
