It has been a really busy few weeks since my last post, with Christmas and New Year’s festivities, two markets at Port Fairy and two birthdays in the family. So lovely busy, not exhausting busy. Today I had the opportunity to travel to Portland Bay Press with my printmaking and market buddy, Denise Regan. We had lots of visitors pop in to the Julia Street Creative Space and the printmaking studio. We often get comments that people remember linocut from secondary school and I try to guess whether it was a positive or negative experience for them.
So this, my first linocut for 2019, is a sequel to “Upwelling”, featuring the Southern Right Whale and calf. This species of whale is a regular visitor to Warrnambool during winter, when sheltered beaches along the Southern coast become whale nurseries. I wonder if you can see the anatomical heart in the image?

Hi Britt, just wanting to know cost for the southern whale Lino?
Thanks for your interest. I have a few left at $80 per print. I can bring one to the Koroit match next Saturday if that is any help to you? I do have a couple in off-the-shelf frames for $120 too – white or light wooden frames and white mount.
Best Regards, Britt Gow
