I'm trying something new this week and making a linoleum block print of the Salt Lake Temple. Here is my progress so far. It's been very therapeutic to physically carve something. Plus I decided to buy the easy carve material to reduce the risk of cutting myself. I have really liked the medium so far, but I don't think I would use it again if I was doing a more organic image. It's really easy to carve straight lines, but curves are a little harder. The fun part about making prints is the element of surprise after you print your first image. I'll let you know how they turn out!

I'm loving my new Wacom Bamboo Tablet. Jeff knew I had been eyeing it, and I was thrilled when it showed up in the mail a few days later. It was a very happy surprise after Baby Jane and I took turns with the stomach flu.
With this tablet the possibilities are endless. It is so nice to sketch and automatically be able to save it digitally. Plus there are so many fun tools and brushes. Basically I'm obsessed. Having a baby that wants my constant attention doesn't leave a lot of room for art. But I'm hoping my tablet will allow me to spend a few minutes here and there to create. I'm also hoping to do more custom work by turning photos into sketches like this one.
