New news


This little print, "Starry Night," about 2.5" x 2.5," is in a show at Two Rivers Printmaking Studio in White River Junction, VT, called "Land on Paper." It's a reduction woodcut, which means that part of the image is cut away after each color is printed, leaving almost nothing on the block at the end. Fun and a bit dangerous! The edition of a reduction woodcut is always limited; this one has ten, two of which have sold. Two other prints are in this show; I'll post them soon. Almost forgot to tell you: the "stars" were made by pushing a Philips-head screwdriver into the wood to different depths.

Love this print! Very clever to use a screwdriver as well. Art is the Mother of invention. Or something like that.

Thanks, Dragon Lady; I have some other tools in my kit, too.....
