Work in progress from the studio this weekend, homage to Matisse’s “Seated Pink Nude”. Reduction linocut print with selective inking. Hoping to get it finished this week!

Really appreciating the new #microblog universal app.

“My bet is that self-talk works best on problems where you’re trying to stay on task and there are possible distractions,” Mr. Lupyan said. “For tasks with a multistep sequence, talking to yourself out loud can help you keep out distractions and remind yourself where you are.” The Benefits of Talking to Yourself
