Contemplate Decomposition Linoleum Block Print, Colorful Hand Printed Wall Art for Nature Lovers
Materials: lokta paper, speedball professional black printing ink
Width: 7.5 inches
Height: 10 inches
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.

I love this art piece so much! Paper was a bit thinner than expected (I was thinking about putting it on my wall w/o a frame), so I put it in a floating frame and it looks beautiful with light filtering through!
it felt like waiting forever for this to come back in stock and it was so well worth the wait. it’s so, so beautiful. love love love.
I absolutely love this! A great reminder for me that even difficulty and hardship can give birth to beauty and new growth! Thank you for sharing your artistic gifts and creative spirit!
The art arrived on schedule and in perfect condition, just like the photo! While the paper is quite thin, I love its rough edges and will be placing it on mat board for framing. I am in love with this piece and can't wait to get it on my wall!
