Hasn't snowed in a lifetime

That title has nothing to do with this post. I just like how it sounds. And it happens to be true.

I haven't posted in a lifetime, either, and I have new images to post, but at the moment, I am camera- less. I have the first four panels of the triptych printed, and I'm getting ready to try the pochoir technique of coloring them. I'm going to make their skin blue, which references Anne Sexton's The White Snake from her Transformations collection of poetry. I also have the second four, but only in drawing form, and they aren't quite finished yet. I'm also trying to get back into the gold leaf groove by making a small panel. I'm on my second try at gilding. Wish me luck.

I have a camera coming, so I hope I can post images soon.

Maybe we'll have snow for the New Year.
