I happened upon this group of small trees on a gray day in spring near the shore of Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. They’re not dramatic as you pass by, but they have great color, shapes, and angles. This is a reduction woodblock print, about 8.5″ square.
Into the North is an illustration from the children’s book, If You Want to See a Caribou.
The story takes place in the northern region of Lake Superior. It’s a two-block reduction print.
A scene from a Boundary Waters canoe trip. The water was still and glassy enough, without a sound anywhere, that it was almost surreal to see the island and clouds perfectly reversed in the water. My print doesn’t do it justice.
From the northeast side of Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park on the north shore of Lake Superior. When the waves are big they crash off the wall with dramatic sound and spray, and beautiful colors. Well worth the hike to see it.
Red Sky at Morning is a five-block print I just finished, printed from poplar wood, 5″ x 5″, on Somerset paper. It was a little bit trickier to print than I thought; the hills and sky were touchy in terms of value and how the colors printed when layered on top of each other. I guess it’s always a learning process.
