The Work:
"Dance Into Light": an original, limited-edition, linoleum block print on Japanese Hosho paper, 2012. Image dimensions 10.25" by 15.75". Paper dimensions 19" by 12" .

The Idea:
Renewal: We all can find ourselves in dark places. This work celebrates the moment when, if we keep the faith, we find ourselves dancing out of the darkness, into light.

The Process:
The print is made with oil-based Daniel Smith Traditional Relief Ink, which will never fade. The paper is hand-made Japanese Hosho print paper. I carved the linoleum blick, and inked it 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.

The Edition:
Edition size: 20. This is print 5/20.
Each print is numbered, titled, signed and dated.
Image size: 15.75" x 10.25"
Paper size: 19" x 12"

This work is MADE TO ORDER. It doesn't take long to print, but the ink needs a few days to dry before shipping. So the processing time is three to five days after you place your order.

This art will be shipped via the US Postal Service. I place the print between two acid-free papers, and I then loosely roll it and place it inside a home-made cardboard tube. I put that inside a 6" x 6" square mailing tube. This is a very sturdy package. I have had good luck with this way of packaging, and with the US Postal Service. This method saves on shipping costs, both for me and for the customer.

Dance Into Light: Original hand-pulled linoleum block print on Japanese Hosho paper. Beauty, grace, enlightenment, and freedom.
