Dog Print Start 

I’ve been craving creating a wood block for several months. Rather than feeling hesitant about cutting into a new block (which always scares me), I’m recycling the flip side of an old one.

Hazelnut kindly has provided the inspiration. Yes, we adopted a new dog. She is a terrier mix and full of spunk. I suspect she ended up in the shelter due to a couple of problems that we will hopefully work through in time. She originally comes from New Mexico and has several health problems. Once we fatten her up, the knee problems will be addressed. If the image works out, I’ll donate one to Safe Haven where she was adopted.

General lines are placed and I’ll be working out more before the cutting begins. The completed imagine will be 6″x 9.5″.

No worries Anna, your book is still in process! I’ll reveal more soon!

  1. Having gotten to know Hazelnut through your Facebook, I think you have captured her spirit beautifully here. Terriers are a lot of fun and definitely have loads of personality. So glad the adoption is working so well for everyone. Karen

  2. Congratulations! Lucky dog!
    Image is very interesting- contemporary composition striking.
    Have fun! I love carving “fur”.
