Little Works

"Single Whip" Block Print (4x5)
Sold this original block print Saturday night.  "Single Whip" is a Tai Chi Chuan posture an is a recurring subject for me over the years. I think this posture was the first moment that I truly connected to the movement in Tai Chi when I first started practicing. The buyer was very excited about the piece and had a whole list of reasons she connected to the work. I enjoyed listening to her talk about it.

I've been remiss in posting some of the block print work I've done recently and will try to correct that soon.  It is a new medium and I have a lot to learn on every level of the process, but I enjoy it. 

I had another night of good response to my work, which comes down this week.  It has been a very positive experience for me and offered some enlightenment on how I need to show my work in the future. Moving all my work leaves me with a serious storage problem now because there are so many large works that I simply do not have room for in my apartment.  Figuring this out is a common problem shared by many artists.  What do you do with the pieces that have not yet sold?  ©2010 Cindy K.
