Limited-edition linocut giveaway

Nov 24, 2012


I nearly forgot that it is my Etsy shop's anniversary today!  I've been quite busy these past few weeks helping out with a church art project and spearheading the Holiday Market at my daughter's school. Oh, and did I mention we got a puppy?!  Pictures to come in the next post.

In all this craziness, I've managed to eek out some me-time at my art desk. . . sleep is over-rated, I say.  My latest creative output resulted in a batch of hand printed linocuts.  Printmaking was my focus in college, but it's been years since I've tackled a hand printing project.  My daughters watched me this time as I hand pulled the first lino print, and all the oohs and ahhs from the peanut gallery just added to the excitement. 

I used turquoise ink for the first few prints and then switched to a deeper blue (and oil-based) ink.  There are only three of the turquoise available, and I thought it would be fitting to give them away in celebration of my three year Etsy anniversary. 

If you'd like a chance to nab one of these limited-edition prints, just leave a comment below.  On Wednesday, November 28th, I'll randomly choose three winners and post the names here.  

I am also giving away these prints with every order in my Etsy shop.  You can check out the details here.

11/28: Congratulations to the three winners! David Thurston, Emmel Prutsemieke, and Emma-Lee

I've been debating whether I should try printmaking again, and your beautiful prints are leaning me back towards yes!

David Thurston said...

The level of detail that you were able to achieve with the lino-cut is very nice, and I like the treatment of the details in the mountains. I think this is a nice compliment to the current lineup in your Etsy shop!

This is beautiful! The turquoise is such a nice color to use for this print. I'd love it if you could check out my blog! http://artbyrobink.blogspot.com/

It's only a matter of time before I buy some of your work, I would love to hang an original painting on my wall!

Katie said...

Hey Cathy! What an awesome giveaway! The colours are lovely, I would so love to add this piece to my collection of your amazing work in my van home!
Love, Katie. XXX

I'm a big fan of your work and watch your blog daily. Your story is also a big inspiration for me. I would be so honored to have a piece of your work, and unfortunately I cannot afford to buy anything just now, as my current day job pays little (but allows me time for creativity!)

I love it Cathy. It makes me want to do a woodcut, I don't know why but I get so relaxed by just cutting away in the wood... I tend to make superbigones. But I'm away for my studies now - no room, nor time! Also my empty room is screaming for some artwork.

But maybe if you randomly choose me, I'll send it to my friend Patrick who has been talking about wanting to do a woodcut all month, so maybe his lazy ass needs a sign like this!! Haha.

Keep up the good work. I like it as much as following your blog.

I just made lino-cuts with my family as well and we had a blast. I'd love to give one of yours to my little sister for Christmas!

Hi!
I have been following your blog for about a year and am determined to figure out how to post a comment today :) A mutual friend in Sisters(KD-hint,hint) is always talking about your art and not only have I enjoyed your art but I really look forward to reading your blog posts.
I love your prints and hope to take a printmaking class this next season. Beautiful work!
Kelly
