Day 5 of my 2 week residency at Soaring Gardens. This afternoon I completed the next woodcut for the Dancing in the Garden series. There are four children in the visual narrative, and each child gets a solo. This girl maintains a stalwart composure as an array of colorful notes, chords, and arpeggios sound behind her. I debated using her leotard color for the border, but in the end I decided in favor of it. It ads to the flat, surrealism of the style and medium being used.
