' Guiro Tropical'
Linocut ~ Image Size/Tamano:  6"x4"/12cm x 10cm
Edition/Edicion:  75

I've finished printing my contribution to the Baren Forum Exchange #49.  They go in the mail today.  I've been working with Zentangle images and this is the second of a series of ten.  The guiro is a typical tropical musical instrument, made out of a gourd and incised with ridges.  To make a rhythmic sound, the musician uses a stick and rubs along the side, making a loud rasping.

Acabo de terminar mi contribucion al intercambio 49 del foro de Baren.  Los metere in el correo hoy.  He estado trabajando con imagenes tipo Zentangle y este es el segundo de un serie de diez.  El guiro es un instrumento musical tipico en el Caribe.  Se lo hace de una calabaza,inscribiendo en los lados.  Para hacer el ritmo musical, tomen un palito duro raspando el guiro firmamente.

I bought a couple of barens but haven't yet used them. Looking at your work is inspiring!

Don't be shy... You'll find printmaking has a definite learning curve but quickly gotten over the top, it's very rewarding.
