The queen of Hearts

This is one of the earliest attempts at photoshop. I did this series as a black and white linoleum cut. But I really wanted the color - the registration would have been a nightmare - not to mention the amount of plates needed to get all the nuance. Its got its problems here and there - but I was thrilled and this little piece turned me on like nothing i had created in years.

Sometimes, in art, and i'm sure at any creative thing done, there is a moment when you realize you haven't breathed in a while. You are lost in some zen suspension of reality. i've only experienced it once in a while, now and then, when I'm cooking on all burners. It keeps you going for a bit - then you hit another plataeu. usually i am sitting on a mesa.
