52 Weeks of Print: 20/52

52 Weeks of Print: 20/52

I've found a happy place in sketching plants. Not sure how long this ride will last.
But I'm loving the process and the outcome, so on I go.

This is a sketch of Valerian. And beside the original image,
"...a relaxing tonic at bedtime."

Then I decided to add it's name. I've carved words before and, let me tell you, it's not that easy to carve using a soft surface. One nick and it's goodbye work. This word wasn't a make or break piece so I went for it and no nicks. Whew.

    1. Oh, Teresa, nor could I! I draw my work onto tracing paper with a pencil then turn it over onto the carving block, rub it lightly to transfer the design and that makes it backward. Then I just carve. Makes my brain handle the situation a lot better than the alternative.
