Still thinking in German after an amazing visit! I loved exploring the country my grandparents emigrated from and speaking their language and pretending I'm a local... This recent trip inspired me with the sights and tastes and sounds of this landscape.... from watching hares leaping in tall grass fields spotted with poppies to enchanting cuckoo clocks! I'm planning to research more of the Grimm tales and folk traditions of my ancestors. This Mother Nature linocut is the first of hopefully many resulting images. I even saw the town where Albrecht Durer lived- talk about printmaking history! So... now to get to work!
