Illustration Friday "Winter"

Getting ready for a big snowstorm here in New England---our first one of this winter. I will have to break out the XC skis myself next week and get out there and enjoy it.

Solarplate Print "Lap Cat"

Just finished my 12 week printmaking class at NHIA with this Solarplate print of my cat, Sadie. She was sleeping on my lap the other day so I drew her from above. I transferred the sketch onto a piece of mylar, then transferred it onto the Solarplate. This image was printed on BFK paper using Akua waterbased intaglio ink.

It's funny, now that Sadie is getting older, she has become a lap cat. In her younger days she would never stay. I think her older bones must like the warmth, and since I'm always cold, I appreciate it too.
