Sunflowers and Pop-Up Holiday Art Sale

I'm still working on the Sunflower print that I've been posting on previous posts. Here is the latest stage of the print.

I think that there will be one more color after this---the background.

One of my art teacher friends is hosting a Holiday Art Sale at her home on December 2, 2017.
I'm joining other artists for the fun event on 779 Beech Street in Manchester, NH. from 12-4:30.
I will be selling prints and Holiday cards. I guess I'll be busy over Thanksgiving break, putting the final touches on my wares!

Sunflower Print Layer # 5

Over the last month, I've been working on a linoleum block print of sunflowers, and I've  just printed the fifth color layer. Here are a few images of the process so far.

Yellow, light green, and ochre layers

Now I will have to carve away the areas that I wish to remain brown, and print layer #6. Another dark green, then the background color should finish it up.
