Earth Laughs IN Flowers
It's finally spring here and that rare time of year when the sun is warm, but not hot and the mosquitos haven't woken up yet. Things are sprouting in the garden, but I'm much more successful with carved linocut flowers than real ones. My dog Basel likes to dig nice sleeping holes and rest in with the flowers and herbs. He's actually dug up my herb garden so many times that all I have left are the chives. Herbs must be especially nice to sleep with. This form of landscaping is not really pleasing to the human eye. If only I could teach him how to only dig out weeds.
This large linocut makes up for my lack of flowers in the garden. It fits in a 16 by 20 inch mat and is done with water soluble printers in and lots of individually carved stamps.

This is wonderful! I especially love the light blue in the background against that yummy red... and please, please, post a pic of Basel, the herb lover.
