Fish Block

"Fish Block"_____6 x 6 Hand colored Block Print_________my collection

This is another school lesson for the Middle School classes I taught. They worked on linoleum with sharp tools. Inevitably someone's tool would slip and the other hand would be lined up in the wrong place ("I told you not to put it there, child!") They loved it when I warned that "In this class there WILL BE BLOOD"...the 12 - 14 year old group seems to like blood and guts...till it happened to THEM!
If I could find the block for this, I could make a small edition to sell, if anyone wants one! Hey, Nancy H., ....did I leave this block in all that art stuff I gave you??? :)
I am painting furiously for the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in Charleston, SC next month. As soon as I photograph the new works, I will start posting them..... tomorrow, I hope.

I like it; it looks like a happy fish with a skinny tale. =)
