Prairie Landscape #1
This print was the first in a series of prairie landscapes, which I haven't yet posted to my woodcuts site--except for this one, because I needed a jpeg for a local event. The jpeg was made by my wife using her digital camera, and now that I see what a snap it is to use the digital camera, I hope to add more or this seriesd to my web site.
I made "Prairie Landscape #1" for a show hosted by Xylon Quebec, celebrating its 20th anniversary, in the summer of 2005. The Xylon print had to be kept to a particular format--the image had to be 12" x 12", the paper size 22 x 26, and the bottom margin had (I believe) to be 9 inches. It's a lot a paper for that size image but a very attractive format. I used BFK Rives and printed damp with oil-based inks on an etching press.
