Life is Beautiful, Life is Painful, Go to the Woods, Contemplate Decomposition. This is a hand carved and pressed linoleum block print on colorful lokta paper (hand made in Nepal). The words came to me at a difficult time, when the beauty of life felt just as overwhelming as the pain of life, and holding them together felt almost impossible. I found a lot of comfort in the woods at that time, a place where the line between life and death isn't so clear.

This is an updated version of an older print. The words stayed the same, but I wanted to create an image that fit with the words in a more intentional way. There is the stump of a long ago cut down tree, now teeming with new life, including mushrooms, flowers, lichens, insects, and a young birch sapling. Nestled between it's old roots is a rodent skull, based on the contents of an owl pellet I found with my sister this spring. I hope this print inspires you to find a little peace where ever you can when times get tough.

The image size is 8"x6" and the paper size is 10"x7.5". There will be minor variations from print to print due to their hand made nature.

We used a floating frame so that we wouldn't lose the edges of the beautiful paper. Thank you!

I was really impressed with the design. The words spoke to me and also made me laugh. The actual print and paper is exquisite and detailed. Package arrived unbent and the personal message inside was thoughtful, making the buying experience really special. I framed it in a floating frame to focus a viewer's attention on the imperfect paper edge. Can't wait to buy more from Kylie!
