Etching, Soft Ground

Mondays at Art School Waihi is open house, free for all and my friend Barbi has been coming every week and getting into the print-making. Here's what we did today, the first bite in the acid of a soft ground zinc etching taken from a drawing Barbi did years ago from life.
Next Monday we will print it and then make whatever changes she feels are needed, chase this puppy down..

Spring Time in New Zealand

Friends of mine who live a couple of streets away have a sheep who just delivered triplets. Here is the one they are keeping, 3 days old and cute as -photo taken just before we head out to the Waikino Tavern 10 minutes drive away in the Karangahake Gorge to have a few beers and listen to the local musicians at open mike on a Sunday afternoon.

Vampire Barbi

My friend Janice donated Vampire Barbi to Art School Waihi to scare the cats and kingfishers away from the goldfish pond..
