Tall Ship Linocut

I am excited to have completed this lino cut. I had some motivational troubles with this one because I wasn’t convinced it would torn out the way I imagined in my head. It didn’t. But that is entirely alright in the end. It is part of the process to see things trough, something I am proud of myself for doing in spite of wanting to scrap the design. For as much self-discouragement I put myself through this ship turned out very well.

Quite¬†a bit was learned in sticking it through. Had I given up I would not have anything to take away from the process; I needed to see the carved block printed to understand¬†how different techniques worked. So glad I did because there was never a reason to give up besides an inner voice telling me it wasn’t good enough. It wasn’t “perfect” there for not worth the effort. If I stuck with that attitude literally nothing would get done – a perfectionists struggles.
