In the Willamette Vally, where I live, Canada geese pass overhead every fall and winter, in their seasonal migration. The flocks are sometimes immense, with several thousand birds. Geese have been doing this for something like ten million years, maybe ten times as long as human beings have been around. I always look up in awe when I see them, so this is a kind of self-portrait.

This piece is titled "December"; it is an original, limited-edition, linoleum block print, done this year, 2012. The edition size is 20. This is print 5/20. Image dimensions: 5 5/8" by 8 1/2". Paper dimensions: 7" by 12".

The print is made with oil-based Daniel Smith Black Traditional Relief Ink, which will never fade. The paper is hand-made Japanese Hosho print paper. I inked the linoleum block with a brayer in the customary way, I laid the Hosho paper on it very carefully, and I ran block and paper through an etching press, to make the print. There is some texture in the white area, not visible here, from the paper being pressed against the block by the etching press.

This work is made to order. It doesn't take long to print, but the ink needs a few days to dry before I ship it. So it will be ready to ship 3 to 5 days after you place your order.

The print is numbered, titled, signed, and dated. It will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail, in a protective clear plastic sleeve, which is rolled loosely inside a 6"-diameter hand-rolled cardboard tube, which is inserted snugly into a 6" x 6" mailing tube -- a very strong package, which has never failed to deliver undamaged art to my customers.
