update Spa Linocut 2009

This is a recent proof of the S.P.A. exchange linocut I am working on. I have three proofs on regular paper and then the entire edition is printed on my doublesided lithograph/pattern ricepaper. At first I was a bit scared that the pattern would be too strong, but now that I am getting to the darker colors and I am seeing how it all blends, it's very exciting to see it's actually working! :) I think 2 or 3 more colors and it'll be just right.

Note to self: "never ever print only as many as needed.... haven't you learned anything? The first thing one learns in print is that you always make more so if you screw up you still have the full edition!!"... oh man i definitely misregistered 3 out of 25 already. Not a smart move to make only 25!
