Congratulations!

Thanks! I sent over the good copies of the photos tonight, so perhaps soon... I would post them myself, but I'd want RF to make the final call as to whether they be unveiled before or after their incorporation....

"The people who live in the Ozark country of Missouri and Arkansas were, until very recently, the most deliberately unprogressive people in the United States. Descended from pioneers who came West from the Southern Appalachians at the beginning of the nineteenth century, they made little contact with the outer world for more than a hundred years. They seem like foreigners to the average urban American, but nearly all of them come of British stock, and many families have lived in America since colonial days. Their material heirlooms are few, but like all isolated illiterates they have clung to the old songs and obsolete sayings and outworn customs of their ancestors." Ozark Magic and Folklore

They are astounding Vermilion, I get the sense that this type of artistry would be a calming effect for you. The humanoid figure done by the comb,( the last one ) most facinating. I'm so glad you shared them, thank you. You are very talented. Please forgive my ignorance, as I'm not up on artists terms, but what does it mean " done as a relief, and was then..... " It sounds like a process of sorts. Thank you.

Regards,
Gypsy

Thanks CG! they were actually created as a giant stamp, then I made several prints in different colours on different papers. The dual figure was done with a glue of sorts, then scratched into for the background. The harbour was done with a kind of linoleum (known as lino-block) being scratched into and dug out with a carving tool, and then printed through a huge roller press.


Thanks for the kind words everyone. It means a lot!
