The birds are multiplying. My latest linocut is a peacock.
I couldn't resist photographing it with some peacock feathers. It is laying on top of an old photograph in a chipped gold frame. Something about peacocks just scream for gold to me.
Here is a close up of those tail feathers.
It is hard to tell from the photo but I used a blueish black ink.
I talk about the process here. I might take a break from the birds for a bit and try some other subject matter. I have a few ideas but I'll have to find my tools first. They have gone missing which isn't a surprise when your "studio" is part of the laundry room and right off the play area. I assume I'll find them stuffed in a shoe somewhere in the next week or so. Wish me luck!
