I just assumed it was a sailing ship. Not sure why I got ships on my mind but the form of this has me thinking of ships. :D Such a great mix of textures and lines.

Thanks! I appreciate your comments.
Ships seem to be in there somewhere -- others have mentioned the same thing. You are not alone.

Ah, nice one. The shiny texture on the piece of paper really complements the rough drawing. They do work great together.

very very impressive! looking at the thumb, i thought it was a sinking clipper ship!

i need to learn more about printing techniques. i took a class in which we did silk screening, photo silk screening, lino, wood cut and and some other stuff. i fell in love with it. 

i've never had enough space to set up all that equipment,though. :)

Yeah, the equipment does take up space and is not exactly cheap, either.
Before this class that I just took, the only other time I took a printmaking class was in the late 70's so it was essentially all new to me.
This class was a pretty good deal -- in addition to class time, the studio was open all day Friday for currently enrolled students. Plus, I made a couple of new friends one of whom has her own printmaking studio which she is letting me use for the next four weeks while she is travelling. I'm looking forward to it.
(Thanks. Other people have seen ship references in this piece.)

Thanks. I think the class was a good thing in more ways than one.  There's an beginning etching class coming up in the fall that I might take. That class leads to another one in etching and collage.

I already copyrighted that in 1972 :B

Damn. Just my luck.
I don't think it would be copyright infringement if I flip it around the other way would it?
Wait a minute, wait . . . 1972 ?  . . .

Did you renew? Is it safe to use now?
Really, I could flip it so it reads from the other direction.
