My Left Hand

I have to see a doctor tomorrow...can barely move my right hand and my left hand is now in charge. Its funny you don't realize that you have this whole other hand that is just as a capable, but when you go to use it....well, its kinda slow and definitely awkward. Need to print and one hand is going to be difficult. Trying to rest it since carving the many of my friends have had this happen before...and most suggested a splint with metal supports...going to see if I can find one today. Typing one finger, lefty at the moment. :(

Impatient, carple tunnel and respirator claustrophobia

Its a sunny day and I'm dremeling...wishing my paper arrived in the print shop, so I could start printing today, as I had planned. grrrrr. Had to vent. So, blasting punk rock, while all my neighbors rake and sweep their gutters....wondering if this goat is all that. The best part of it all is....

Back to the Ibex

Finally purchased a respirator so that I can continue to dremel the goat. Bella took this picture before I told her to flee...the fumes are really something else! Going to print this intaglio in pthalo blue...I think :)

Technology Has Won

Welcome to my new blog. I have not yet done this online "blog" thing, but in the next three weeks, I will chronicle my work in the print shop in preparation for an art exhibit I am having with my brother, Max Leon....and after that...I will see if I get the hang of this!
