Just off the top of my head, these quick images are great for kids who love nature, as gifts or even one of a kind bookmarks for book lovers. I love the desert and enjoy day and night hikes, sitting and watching the sun or hugging trees (sometimes rocks!).
These are many smaller woodcuts that I use as "sketches" to hone skill in capturing the woodcut essence in the desert around me. I usually take a bunch of little blocks in my backpack the way other artists take a sketchbook. A magic marker is my weapon of choice as it allows me to sketch quickly and capture the quirky shapes of desert flora and the awesome darks and lights of desert landscapes.
Suitable for smaller frames, these make great gifts framed or unframed. Signed Woodcut Limited edtion Landscape Traditional up to 6 in
