Desert Blooms
1999 Woodcut
10" x 15"
Very limited edition of 36

Block: Cherrywood
Ink: 9 colors, my mixes, oil based
Paper: Arches Black
Process: Two-block reduction, 6 printings, one block for the cacti; another for the flowers
Image: These type of cacti bloom for about two days in just the perfect conditions; the cacti leaves can swell up with water after a rain storm or wither away in the heat of the dry summer months. The blooms then give way, in some species, to prickly pear fruits.

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.
Sold in pristine/never framed condition (sold unmatted/unframed).
Designed, cut and hand-printed by the artist
