Sand Cake

I am quiet inside. I am quiet inside, and there is quiet all around me because I am busy making something. I am making a beautiful cake which is very smooth on top because I can pat, pat, pat with my white shovel. I can make the white shovel do what I want it to do. When the top is flat, I will press my palm into the cool sand and leave a print. I am making a beautiful sand cake. Do you want to try some?

"Sand Cake" is my new, original lino print, each individually hand-colored using watercolor. Each print is a little different from the others because each one is unique. Each is printed on quality printmaking paper. All of my lino prints are inspired by the pages of Acorn Pies, with young children having fun outdoors playing, creating, and imagining. I will be putting "Sand Cake" into my etsy shop later this week.

I just love the way you describe the girl. Very sensitive, very "Bethy".
Thanks!
