Ice Cold Ice

I wanted to try a homage to the Japanese Edo period printmakers with their airy minimal landscapes. I got inspired one cold day, by this scene outside my window., though I took out 26th Ave, some tennis courts , light poles and several trees.

I took the week off from printing when a frigid cold front came through. Not the workshops, though, my timing is great as I’m due at Athmar Branch for what will be a record cold night. Not expecting a big crowd for that, but the show must go on!

I’ve posted a last free Denver Public Library workshop for Ford-Warren branch on Dec. 4, though. It should at least be warmer by then, shouldn’t it?

The title is from one of my favorite Husker Du songs “Ice Cold Ice.”

We sit and pray together that they might change the weather
My love for you will never die, if I sound distant that’s because
Shouldn’t see me cry in ice cold ice
Shouldn’t see me cry in ice cold ice

Which in turn, always makes me think of  the scene in that Bugs Bunny cartoon where Bugs takes the Penguin home to Antarctica, tries to leave him there, and the Penguin begins to cry… ice cubes. A strange thought progression, yes. I think my synapses may be frozen.
