In the last few lessons with Mackenzie, she worked on a drawing of a Manga cartoon character. This was an exercise in drawing accuracy; she did great!
Next I helped Mackenzie with her own linocut printing. She designed the image, which she drew onto the linoleum, and then I helped her by carving it out for her with a chisel. She used her current favourite "doodles"; a flower, a heart, the 'rooting for Rachel' symbol, and a cross. We had fun using different colour inks to make the prints.
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
