"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Endings and Beginings

Rose Hips and Snow Shadows.
7 Colour Reduction Linocut. 180mm x 270mm.

With a burst of productivity I printed the final colour on the Rose hip print and then started the next one. After looking back to winter, the next print looks forward in anticipation of the coming spring.

I expect you can guess where we are going with this print. In 3 more colours it will be finished.

This turned out very well! You've captured the luminous quality of snowy days perfectly. And the rose hips are a nice touch.

Thanks Katka
It got a bit difficult with the registration, if I was redoing it I would do things a bit differently. But overall, I'm happy with how it turned out.
