I love woodcuts and I make woodcuts. On this blog I write about woodcuts I love and woodcuts I make.

"The Turtle" by Eliza Draper Gardiner
The air is still, and it is a quiet, cool-blue autumn day. The door to the kitchen has just slammed shut, and I move closer to the house, attracted to the sound of water being drawn in the kitchen.
I clumsily crawl up two steps on short limbs and under the weight of my over-sized head. Baggy overalls and sleeves just get in my way. I notice you, and you notice me. You, also burdened by stubby limbs and the weight of your shell, lumber across the ground that I've just abandoned on my way up.
