I really miss my old printmaking classes

I had a wonderful time yesterday visiting my sister and niece and mostly my son. It's been a year since I saw him and he looks healthy and buff. Paul will be 40 this June so I gave him an early present of my Ipod filled with old music memories I know he will enjoy. We always loved the same music. He in turn gave me a cd of his latest fav which it turned out I already liked. Maybe we can see eachother more often now that he is living closer to me. I sure need that since he always could make me laugh and cheer me up. I LOVE YOU PAUL!

I did this print in classes oh so long ago. It's where my heart was then. I love the inks and textures you can get from printmaking. Reminder to self take more classes in that art field. I was overwhelmed there was so much to learn. So many techniques and inks. I can't even decipher my notebokk,lol. I still carve the easy to use rubber blocks and make prints in journal pages. But if you have never tried printmaking it's worth while.

I'm glad you had a nice visit with everyone.

I haven't done printmaking other than carving the linoleum tiles in high school! I still remember the smell of those blocks.

Thanks for your visit and nice comments on my blog, Joy. It's always nice to hear from new people and fellow artists. I really enjoyed looking through your art images here. I'll be visiting again.
