Inspired by the wild beach, as is much of my work, just a short bicycle ride away from my house and studio, I love the muted colors of almost winter, the smooth beach pebbles, and the birds coming through on their winter trails. This is a favorite time of year for me, which in a way is strange, as I usually do very colorful work, maybe it is the calm of the colors, that is so relaxing?
These linocuts, they come as a pair, are printed in a gorgeous dark gray and stone gray on a piece of beautiful warm very heavy white printmaking paper, with printmaking inks.
The actual pieces of paper with the bird and stones measures 15" x 20" (38cm x 50 cm) and they are printed almost all the way to the edge.
They do fit in a standard frame, just custom order your mat from the framer.
You could also frame them together and make a real impact piece for your room.
I have signed the 2 pieces and numbered them as mono prints, that is , unique prints not to be repeated in this version.
You can see me printmake in various films, go to the "me at work" section in my shop and see my youtube videos.
I'll mail your 2 prints to you, protected by tissuepaper and cellophane in a sturdy tube, with a nice flier explaining what a linocut is.
Thanks for visiting with me, and welcome back!
