First in a series of linocuts.
I have had these linoleum blocks sitting in my studio for a year now. I've always liked the graphic quality of block prints, and was excited to make some myself. But somehow I couldn't find the impetus to put an image on the lino and cut. But here it is...
The image is 3" x 4" printed on a normal size piece of tan cardstock. The print was just a test so the contact isn't good, and it isn't the finished product. I have to get over to the art store and peruse their paper selections. I am thinking I would like to try and print the image on a thin paper, maybe rice paper, something that is light. And I am going to pick up another block - or two. There may be some more lino cuts on the way.
