See, I was telling the truth

I promised to show a few things in place of finished pieces, so here is the sketch for Psalm 10:
Here's about version 4 or five of the drawing, it's close enough to begin carving. I choose Lino again, mainly because there wasn't anything in the print that would benefit from the wood grain and I am still trying to see how thin of a line I can carve and print on Lino.
Here is the block itself, it was a 8" x 10" block, so the image size, like the last post, is about 6.5" x 7.25".

I'm Carving Away, Really, I Promise

If there is a Blog Police, I'm a wanted man.
If there is a Printing Police, I'm in serious trouble.
I have been a carving maniac these last few weeks, I've completed the design and carving of
Psalm 9, Psalm 10 and almost finished with carving Psalm 11 !
So, I'll share the blocks until I get caught by the printing police, who will of course force me to get caught up or face the consequences, whatever they are.
Drum roll please ...................
