New Butterfly Linocut

I decided to make another large butterfly linocut thinking it would be a nice partner for another one I made. Also, I need a larger piece for the big March auction at the art center where I have my studio. The final print will be 14" x 18". The butterfly will be at the top and then something else at the bottom. We'll see! As you can see, I started carving the linoleum for the printing of the first color, which I will do as soon as the paper that I ordered arrives!  
I will show you more as I go. 

I love my desk in the corner where I do all my drawing and sit-down work.
I'm first removing all of the linoleum from the outside.
The linoleum is easier to carve when it is warm so I use this warming tray before carving.


  1. I hope they don't go. :-(
    If they find a good home, I guess that would be fine.

  2. If I can find my practical side, I'll try it!
    But it might not be easy.

  3. I enjoy seeing your linocut process, Anne! That's an ambitious size - a great deal of detail. Can't wait to see it!

  4. I'll show it to you when I'm finished, hopefully by the end of the month! The process is kind of fun when you see how it unfolds as you add the colors one by one. Sometimes a surprise at the end!
    Thanks for stopping by!
