New Print for Autumn: Scare Crow Dream


Sometimes, the crow wins. 

From one block grows this multicolored image in glowing yellow, carved and then printed in straw gold, pumpkin oranges, autumn red, and night dark blue/black. Like a batik on paper, the color is printed, then the image is carved away to save it. Print, carve, print, carve, print. I like working this way, watching the image develop as I print each layer. If I start with a light color, I can add to it until all I can make is night.

Size: 7"w x 5 1/2"h
Edition: 36 copies, signed and numbered
Printed on Strathmore Printmaking Paper .

I made this for a friend's autumn birthday. It's available now in my Etsy store, nevermindtheart.
