Artist's description:

You know how high expectations can stand in your way, make you not see what is right in front of you as the even better opportunity, always check all directions!!

WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of only 10 prints , I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your roller of ink. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
You can join over 60.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, either go to and search under my name.
I have added som of the smaller color details by hand.
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!

the image measures 12" x 15" (30cm x 39 cm)
