Comments: “Hidden in the glorious wildness like unmined gold.”
When I first saw the cabin I felt strangely attracted to the old tittering wooden thing. Maybe because I saw it comfortably hidden, surrounded by overgrown gamble oak, mountain mahogany and a variety of fir, spruce and pines. We kept nearly all the trees and the cabin shines in the glorious sun bathing the leaves with light.
I used a variety of techniques to achieve a sun-bathed woodland softness, a blotter for backing, grainy paper and softer ink.
Process: Woodcuts and wood engravings are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.
All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil. Signed Numbered Wood engraving Limited edition Landscape Traditional 12 to 36 in
