Kelly gives herself a complete bath every morning after breakfast on the table in front of the window in my studio, her every move full of purpose and industry.

This print captures an autumn morning, when the leaves on my maple trees have colored and filter the sun, speckling the table with splashes of sun and shadow.

It is printed on white rice paper imprinted with tan oak-leaf shapes randomly placed, double-matted with an tan black core mat.

The image size is 4" x 10", the frame size is 7" x 14". The double mats are both tan black core, 1-1/4" top mat with 1/4" bottom mat. The frame is matte-finish black composite wood.

Block printing is a technique wherein the artist carves the surface of a piece of linoleum, leaving raised areas which will become the image. Ink is rolled onto these raised areas, then a piece of paper is pressed against the block and when it's lifted away the ink remains, leaving the image on the paper. Because of this process, each print is slightly different and therefore unique.

I usually print a series of six prints, preparing my papers ahead of time, then offering them matted and framed, matted only, print only, hand-tinted and sometimes incorporated into another type of work.

I carved and printed this one according to my first idea, then decided I might like each scene to have a border and a little more detail, so you'll also find Kelly's Morning Bath 2. In addition to this matted print, they are available as a print alone or matted with no frame. In addition to the printing them as wall art, I also print them on other items such as curtains, placemats, tablecloths and other household items.
