Thanks for visiting the Studio

It was wonderful to meet visitors to my studio at Open Studios West Gippsland and share time explaining linocuts. I love the feedback and energy I get from people on these days. On this occasion I was printing some thrush linocuts, which folded into a freestanding linocut. It was a hands-on experience for my visitors many of whom took the opportunity to roll the press. I printed with fast drying water-based inks so visitors could take one home as a souvenir.
