Late January Melancholy
Days have turned colder, but it's really been a pretty manageable winter. Unlike last year, when extended cold streaks dominated from Nov to March - making for a very very late winter - we had snow well into May - this year has been better. Fresh snow fell yesterday - so the world is white and sparkling. But the dark is still present - though that's beginning to change as well.
I've been dug in, watching Reframe Film Festival films, and painting this and that.
I've also been carving a few lino-blocks for a new chapbook - which will also form my submission to the Grimsby Wayzgoose Anthology, which i've contributed to for more than 15 years now. I'll speak more about that when it's complete.
As well, a couple commission broadsides are in the works - i'm currently running a deal - 2 colour #letterpress broadside, you supply the words (there are limits - ask me about your text) and I create up to 5 copies for you for $125 +HST. The usually size is 11x14 (framable). You suggest colours - and leave the rest to me. Hit me up if you wanted to be added to the list. Special runs to the end of February.
