Wonderful block print
I love the colors
Glad to read that your parents are ok. Stay strong

Can't help but comment on block prints - this one has much energy and I like how you applied papers to make the book cover.

Beautiful Heather - so glad to see you back in IF. It's a lovely journal too. Glad to hear the family is safe - but it will definitely be a different world for them. The strong family roots that go deep will certainly help them through. Hugs and prayers - Becky

Awesome block print!! I love the raw energy of the piece with its rock solid theme. Well done

Nice work, it is really lovely. You printed the block once, in black then painted the image? Just wonderful work. I check here so very often for any new work that you've done.

I'm glad your parents are safe. My I-fri was a block print too. sigh, I need practice, practice....

I love this piece--both the artwork and what you wrote along with it. Very appropriate to the topic and current tragedy that is the Gulf Coast. Thank goodness your family didn't come to any physical harm, but I am very sorry that your parents have been temporarily displaced--even those whose homes remain intact will be affected. I can't imagine a similar scene here in Houston, I really can't... an entire city and so many lives changed (and lost) in the course of a few hours. :(

really like your print, the concept of strong roots both supporting and nourishing beautifully conveyed. Glad to read your parents are safe, sorry for the difficult times ahead.
