More fun workshops

I've had lots of fun working with lovely people coming to my workshops. Here are the results, as usual inspiring.

Tess's tree worked really well in red on black paper and Nicola chose black to show off her house and cats, very effective.

Lynn's iris was lovely, 
Gilly's sea horse looked great in blue.
3 friends came to my next class. 
Clare's lino block of her lovely hare, I didn't get a picture of the finished print.
Collette's toadstools were very effective. 
Nanette's sunflower was delightful. 
All were excited by the possiblities of lino cutting; fun had by all. 
I've been working on a new lino cut, Hares in the Spring, which has taken a lot longer than usual to plan and cut as I've not been well. Getting back to being 'me' again a,d here's the print. It's a series of small editions, each one in a different colour.
One of the screen printed backgrounds. 
 Blue sky version.... 
and this colour way ready to be my next card design.
Recently my son Will watched Mum and fox cubs on his walk locally and I 've spent time quietly watching them, so cute and small. I love their dark ears! 
My own delightful family, Barney walked out of the first picture but the 2nd one shows enthusiastic
removal of pond weed by Barney and William, now walking. They had great fun!
My son William continues his recovery following his radiotherapy. He and Louise have birthdays this week, 35 and 37 so happy celebrations.
