Here is my first proof from the etching press of the plate I worked on Friday. Looks good. I want to burnish the lines of the stones in the house to lighten them up- just give more of the ‘overexposed’ feeling which came through very well in the leaves on that side.
Also I stopped smoking. It’s been shockingly less arduous than I suspected thus far, but I shouldn’t say such things too soon. I read this book: The Easy Way to Stop Smoking. The website for it looks like a marketing hoax –big and gaudy– but I did find the book really effective. It’s a kind of brain-un-washing, I suppose. Battles the mental side of quitting, which is the only major obstacle, really.

Congratulations on the quitting of the diet Pepsi. You won’t miss it after awhile. Not worth the risk– I didn’t know that about diet sodas. Hey, now you can take up coffee- it’s much less evil!
As for the picture, well it’s a copperplate, so I can make quite a few of them once I finish working on it… So I’ll make sure there’s one for you. 🙂
Dude, I want this picture!!!! How much please?
OMG, my Lee has quit smoking. Yes!!!!!! I’m so , sniffle, freaking proud of you! Guess what? I have my own monumental quit. That’s right I’m off the Diet Pepsi.
IT SUCKS!!! I gave it up for Lent, and I guess permanently. I read some article that said drinking diet soda increases your risk of having a stroke by 60%. Well with my Dad’s stroke I guess I already have some risk factor! No thanks.
We will be miserable together via this here world wide web.
