January beginnings

This year I hope to spend more time making relief prints.  I have started playing with a couple of designs to be developed as lino cuts.  The first is based on a previous acrobat design of mine, but taken further while thinking about the idea of Janus.  I wanted to try out some double-direction action, not just a head looking both ways.
The second image was inspired by the two white ducks which are on our village pond, and which I can see from the house now that the trees have lost their leaves.  The sun is shining, but it is cold, so I was imagining sitting keeping the ducks company. 
Both designs have a way to go yet.


  1. Love the idea of the facing opposite ways acrobats ... so much life in those figures!
