I Decided to call it "Ebb Tide" - meaning "The receding or outgoing tide; the period between high water and the succeeding low." It also can be use as a way of describing a state of decline... which kind of goes with the Lord of the Flies feel of these "wild" images of Kanon!
and a haiku for this image and my last woodblock image:
Summers ebb and flow,
Sun glistens through the air,
Urchin on the beach.
turning my last woodblock into a much larger piece - 28"x12" ~ I'll
share the background which I sandblasted to bring out the woods grain
and the final etching of this one (I'm calling it "Ebb" but reserve
the right to change it) later!

comes out on it's own, but I'm trying to be more deliberate in the way
I make my marks... Instead of timid little sketches I want solid
studies that reflect the final peice more. I'd like people to be able
to say I have a recognizable style some day!

turned out to be too bright a background for my newest etching... This
one is my favorite so far (the newest one always is:). I'm calling it
"freshly fallen" and is a continuation of my snow covered trees series.
