Launch of the Simple Year and the New Updates

To celebrate 2008, the Simple Year, I combined the Diary and Updates into a compact and hopefully more frequent format.
What's the Simple Year all about? Well, for starters I'm taking 2008 off the festival circuit to get back on track on some art creation projects and home stuff. I'm no Thoreau, but hope to rekindle my love affair with wood, art, family, and all the important simple things in life.
For now, I'm on full rest and planning mode.

More later...


  1. Looks good, Maria! I'm looking forward to reading your posts & seeing what you are up to...

  2. Hi Maria. I'm looking forward to keeping track of your goings on, too. This woodcut is lovely. Did you print it jigsaw style, or with several passes on the press? (I'm always looking for trade secrets!) Your work looks amazing all set up for a show.

  3. Hi Annie,
    I printed it with two blocks. Color block was inked with masks, that is, I masked off each color section and rolled up.
    Once the colors were done I printed the key block in black.
    Process is here:
    Thanks for your comments!

  4. Thanks for the link to that great documentation! It's a wonderful print.
