Sepia Saturday

I love these woodblock prints. This one’s by Hokusai, whose famous wave, is my most favorite print.

Hats off to the 19th and early 20th century. They sure had some innovation and creativity in terms of invention.

Maybe we should be more humble about our era.

 

 

 

 

Sculpture Saturday

Saturday Sculpture was hosted by the Mind over Memory blogger.

To join in, what you need to do is:

  • Share a photo of a sculpture
  • Link to below because Mind over Memory’s has had to stop hosting. Between a new graduate program and work, she’s super busy

It’s a fun challenge. Give it a try.

I made a new little logo for Sculpture Saturday. Feel free to use it.
