Grain

I’ve often included images of nature in my artwork.  Recently, I came across these two photos of woodcuts from the 1970s, one of which I’ve sold out.  So it’s great to have a record of it.

When I began printmaking, I became interested in depicting trees showing both their branches and roots as in these prints. They’re almost like x-rays below the ground. For these woodcuts, I carved pine boards and enjoyed using ones in which the knots and grain of the planks were prominent.

  1. Both are great compositions. I love the way the branches have become tendril like.
