Original woodcut Southwest landscape Zion National Park hidden canyon
8 x 3.5 in
Paper: Arches Tan
Process: Sketched while sitting at an art festival
Image: Drawn from memory.
What is it about the mouth of the canyon that makes some turn about their heel and look for an easier way, and others head right into the steep walls searching for the opening that is likely to exist?
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 by the artist.
Designed, cut and hand-printed by the artist
