Artist's description:

In a perfect cat heaven, one reclines on fish in a state of eternal bliss.

This is a square 5 color linocut reduction, reduction means that as I print the colors and sculpt/carve the plate, I cut away the lino as I go along, so I have to have it all planned out and be focused on what I am doing. A reduction print can be a bit of a head game but I love the technique where the print grows in front of you, leaving a lino plate I can't print more from, so there are only 10 prints.
Reduction lino is quite a difficult process as you have to register, that is, line up the plate and paper every single time you print, and with 5 colors, this amounts to a lot of patience!
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist, and I sign, title and number each print.

If you would like to see some Youtube films with me printmaking, and you can see me make a reduction print, look at and search under my name for a whole gang of printmaking films.

SIZE: The linocut itself measures 12" x 12", (30cm x 30cm )
and the beautiful piece of creamy white printmaking paper
measures 16" x 15", (40cm x 38cm)
this linocut will easily take being framed quite large and strong,
it does fit a standard frame.
the interior photo is not entirely to scale and the print is sold unframed.

SHIPPING: I'll mail "Cat Heaven" to you protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve so it arrives safely, see my reviews. My prints come with a flier (see thumbnail) explaining what a linocut is, and who I am as an artist.

If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!

Thanks for looking
