16" x 20"
Ink: Umber/red-copper rainbow

Image: A mixture of playfulness and danger, since they are wood figures playing close to fire. Perhaps an analogy to the art life I have chosen? Perhaps just a playful and dangerous fantastic scene.
Process: Woodcuts 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 Woodcut Limited edition Figures Surrealism 12 to 36 in
