Rainmaker I
Woodcut 2005
12" x 16"
Edition 30

Block: Cherry
Ink: Mixes of red/black, purple/blue, plus the three process colors to make the rainbow
Paper: Beech Grove Paperworks Old Masters Blue (Moonlight)
Process: This is a "puzzle" piece, in which the block was sawn in 2 pieces prior to printing. In the first state (Rainmaker I), I only printed the image in black ink.
The image is from an ongoing series about people in the desert, mythical and real...or surreal? In any case, there is much to do in the desert, usually gathering (or making) food and water and seeking shelter. Incidentally, this fellow was particularly successful this year (2005) because the Southwest has broken every record in the books as far as rainfall.

Woodcuts and wood engravings are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.

All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil by the artist.
Designed, cut and hand-printed by the artist
