52 Weeks of Print: 47/52 Folk Art

So, if you take one look at this and say, “That’s not folk art!”, don’t be too harsh. But do tell me because I’m a newbie.
In all honesty, I’m not sure I nailed the folk art theme but I was attempting a simplified version. I thoroughly enjoyed working this way – not so much worrying about proportion and size relation and actually attempting to skew it somewhat. SO fun.

I will most assuredly explore this theme further.

If you’ve been following this 52 Weeks of Print project from the beginning, have you noticed that as it progresses, my projects become larger and/or more involved? Case in point – compare week three with week forty-three. Right?

Each week I tell myself, “work small and simple, you idiot!” Yet, every single time I fail miserably. This week’s theme involved simple lines – good start.

I carved it large, proving my subliminal need for more work. If it’s gonna be simple, it’s gonna be big. For week 48 I’ll probably attempt to carve the Mona Lisa. And then plead ignorance.
