From the artist:
Aspen trees have such interesting white trucks with marks resulting from their growth patterns.
I chose to print this image on a tan colored paper and use a blend of inks to suggest the spring forest and a meadow.
From the Artist:
"These works are creased using a traditional relief block printing method. I carve my design into the block's surface, one block for each color or I may a subtractive method using a single block. Each color is them inked and printed separately to develop the completed image. Each image is printed by hand using a press. Editions often limited to 6-10 copies. My imagery usually develops from my observations of the laces and things I see."
