Self-Portrait Linocut by Beck




I love Black and White...   I love Faces...  and I love the strength of these lines..

This is one of my favourite artworks....  It was done by my daughter, Rebecca.  






This piece hangs where I can see it when I enter the house... 

She stares across the room towards the front door... watching all who enter.
... rather like a Guardian...




 She hangs just above the steel wood rack ... the fuel for our homes hearth...
...perhaps she guards over our warmth too...

...oh and along with John who keeps the wood rack filled and the fires stoked.


Linocut self-portrait approx. size 6" x 9"...  
Antique frame 15" x 17".. used as I found it, chips and all... I like things that show their life ... 
...Hornet's nest and tiny bird nest on twig hang above.
... the heavy duty 5' tall wood rack, John made.

Rebecca lives happily in Saint John, New Brunswick with Stephen, Hannah, Callum and Ben... my darlings, All.

The Red-Breasted Nuthatch has returned... to the feeder and to my wall...  I love these little guys... and I love this drawing.
