Being Sunday I take the day off to observe the Sabbath and spend time with my family. Sometimes this is really hard for me because carving started out as my Sunday activity to have time to myself. It was stress free and I could lose myself in the art. Now that I support my family with my art I feel guilty working on it on Sunday. At times like today I sketch or work on little works like this one just for me, then I don't feel as guilty. What do you do on Sunday?
Shop update will be July 1st! If you want to get early access make sure you are subscribed to my newsletter. I only send 1-2 emails per month and it's either a shop update or free download email. This new agave will be a part of the update but there will only be 5 available. I hand carved the agave from a rubber block. It is on 11x15 cotton paper with light teal ink. The bronze tips are painted on each print along with the green spots. #cactusart #cactus #azartist #blockprinting #linocut
It's not very often you see my husband's face on here but I could not create artwork without him. He listens to me endlessly bounce ideas off of him and he builds my panels and frames. We drive all over the country together doing art shows and I would not have it any other way. Plus, he is the best Dad to our two babies! This man has made me the happiest person I could be and I am so grateful for him in my life.
Video detail of this work in my stories today. I'm so happy with this 8 round and am so excited to create a larger work with markings like this. This work took 25 hours to carve because the entire surface is small carved lines. I will be doing a shop update with this work and others on June 26th at 8am. #southwestdesign #southwestdecor #arizonaartist #desertdecor #desertart
These yucca used to be planted in the sand dunes and then the dunes blew away. They look so cool floating feet above the ground.
