10 x 10 in, 2B Blocks, white lined & Black Ink, Akua on Rives BFK, edition 50. I am using both white line color block & black ink to achieve my goal. It is a little different from other water-based prints, but I find it interesting, little worry over registration and use of only two blocks is easier to cut and print.

Child w/ Broom

8 x 8 in, One block shina plywood reduction, Holbein watercolors $ Sumi ink on Torinoko Cream Paper from Mc Clains, edition Open. This print is based on a photo of one of my children when younger. I tried to be consistent in printing, but experimenting with getting texture on the bricks means that every print is a little bit different. So, it is a varied edition. Part of the block was destroyed in the little bit of reduction that I did. The red bricks were printed first and then part of the carved away in order to print the black outline of the child.

Kentucky Poodle goes to Southern Utah

10 x 10 in, Wood, Akua on Sommerset white, edition 32. Paddington bear was our traveling companion last autumn. This woodcut was inspired from one of the many photos taken of him as we traveled from Kentucky throughout the Southwest and back home.
