linocut portrait -- Baldwin was challenging, but I like a challenge. Making portraits of my loved ones from photos I've taken of them would be pretty cool. A nice gift idea, too.

It's amazing to me how they were able to make this look like an alternate media. It would be interesting to try and mimic a painting with my mark-making. I enjoy how clean...and messy this piece is all at once.

The area of shadow is very strong in this piece. I of course love how gestural it is and how imperfect chatter was left as part of the piece along the edges of the fur. The size differences in the strokes also brings me in. It keeps things interesting.
