Julio Rodriguez, Skokie, IL

11 x 6 in, linoleum, Blick’s water soluable inks on Rives Light Cream, edition 15. A series of health-related setbacks kept delaying work on this print. Finally an idea was copied to linoleum and the process started. I am always amazed at the complex root systems of trees. How amazing it would be if we could have a peek at their underground world.
