I've been accused of ignoring my upland hunting heritage in regards to my artwork, and instead concentrating on that other diversion we use to kill time when the bird seasons are closed.
I've dabbled a bit, to be sure, but nothing real serious, or that get's me excited.

Ok, so it's a ditch parrot. Specifically, it's a friend of mine missing a ditch parrot. I wanted to start with a simple image, and this one seemed to fit the bill. A gray fall day, a bit of snow on the ground - not much color except the hunters jacket and the red patch on the pheasants eye. It's not printed the best yet ("a/p" stands for Artists Proof...) either.
Here's some images of the blocks used to print the piece:
I've got a pile more that I'll be working on this fall/winter.
