Double Grow

I've got 2 for grow this week. The first is a new piece, a winding river making it's way through an autumn forest. A forest for me is a continual reminder of birth, growth, death and rebirth. Every fall the leaves die and grow new again in spring. But in dying, they continue to grow, to change. In fact their growth is most extreme in their last stage of life, when the color is most radiant... Plus I'm really into drawing owls lately!

The second is an old picture I titled the tree of life. Many things grow on it and come from it. Also, for those interested, I've just started my own "Etsy" shop! Right now I have 8x10 prints and a set of Christmas cards up there, but I intend to list more items this week. Check it out here (www.WoodyMart.etsy.com).

Extremely Spooky!

Here's a house I did a few weeks back that is "extremely" spooky, also very Halloweenish. It was drawn from a house in Redwood Shores, one of the most mild suburban neighborhoods where nothing like this ever happens... or does it?http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif

Also here is a print I did for the Four Oceans Press print exchange. It's Linoleum cut, 2 blocks. I'm pretty happy with it, the theme is "Autumn", so I'm still on the fence as to whether the colors work for that. I suppose if it was spring the colors would be more pure. Anyway, I call it "Autumn Conference".
