This is from Carla Cryptic, she wasn't part of the Year of the Rooster swap but had sent me mail art so I sent her a Rooster. She sent this to me last week.

This is a nice spring mailing from Jack at Cascadia Artpost, Thank you Jack! Posted by Hello

Greg Lawler Photographs

This is a postcard from Greg Lawler at Small Planet Photography. I bought a small photograph of his at an art fair a few years ago similar to this one. I like the way he waited for the walking man to be in the patch of light on the road and printed the bordering trees as dark as he did. Very striking. Posted by Hello

Anne Garney

Anne Garney is one of my favorite painters. She lives in KC in the River Market area and paints mostly KC landmarks. I think she used to be a director of the KC Parks & Rec department...Ron and I went to the Kansas City Artists Coalition Open Studios event in 2000 and hers was one of the studios we visited. I really like the vivid colors she uses, they are really evocative of the festive nature of the Plaza and the city. She has a show coming up at Chiro Studio & Gallery at 706 West Pennway through April 30 with a reception April 1 from 6-9pm. Posted by Hello

Another look at the Crow Posted by Hello


I got the ink retarder last night and used it on the clouds this morning. Much better! I was able to get good coverage in the sky blue area and the cards look great! Posted by Hello


Here's the first reduction carving I did. This has 3 colors, the background is an old stamp pad and the other two are block printing inks. I did an edition of them as ATCs for trading on the ATC Exchange other groups I trade in. Posted by Hello
