Hi Jim,

This 'Anniversary Orchic' print is really lovely! Orchids are one of my favorite subjects for woodblock prints (hanga) & you can see some of them at:
http://printartsnw.org or on the barenforum.org website.

Great to have you on baren & keep up the good work!

Thanks, Wanda! I especially like "Paleonopsis" and the "Fall" scene. Last night was my first attempt at doing Hanga, just experimenting though. I had found a printmakers site who had recomended using wall paper paste in place of the rice flour mixture, so I bought some and am discovering what it will and will not do. Jim
