This print features the memorizing Yosemite Falls, as seen from along the Merced River at Sentinel Bridge. One of my favorite places to relax and contemplate in the Valley, I was able to spend 3 days working on this 24" X 18" linocut on the spot! Plein Aire Printmaking at its best! It's bewildering how different each rock face appears completely different depending on time of day and weather; new every time! Spring runoff time is a magical moment in the lifecycle of this World Heritage site. This year, we had a fair snowpack, so the water was really moving and the roar of the Falls could be heard even that far away! And since this is an icon view, the bridge is a well-visited and loved spot, and very entertaining for people and wildlife watching! I happened to share my carving plot within 15 feet of a mule deer group, though they expressed little interest in the medium once it was clear it was not edible.
This is No. 8 in a planned edition of 12 prints in 12 months honoring Yosemite's 125th Birthday and a 'Big One' for me - We are both celebrating for the entire year! You can find the 7th print in the series here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/278994324/black-oak-yosemite-quercus-kelloggii

The print is SO much more beautiful in person & was the perfect gift for my partner. I’d been eyeing it for months & finally pulled the trigger figuring it would be a few days late for the holiday. The added bonus gifts, quick shipping & incredible attention to packaging really made it all the more special. It will be a cherished addition to our collection.
My son loved it! special ties to Yosemite when you grow up in Oakhurst
I love this chubby little bird!!!! It's just perfect and rounds out my little nature inspired wall. Bulky has made friends with a rabbit and a squirrel. Beautiful design and print..Love love love my purchase!!
I've had my eye on this print for awhile and I'm so happy I finally decided to get it! I love the story of the trout and the detail of the reduction print. I'll update my review with a photo once I have it framed. Thank you so much!
