Four Big Birds

Last May I participated in a class with Julia Talcott at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown.  In this class we carved  24″ X 36″ linoleum blocks and created big black and white prints.  We printed the blocks using a steamroller.

Over the last few months I worked on additional linoleum block prints and now I have a series of four prints completed.  I worked at MIXIT Studio in Somerville during the summer to print the four pieces in editions of ten.  The prints are inspired by the Hokusai show I saw recently at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the work of John James Audubon.
