The thing I remember most about my first trip to Maine was the abundance of roses along the coast. I have a fondness for rambling, wild roses, the kind you might find in an overgrown English-style garden. I did not imagine that these types of roses could grow in the sandy soil along the coast, but these beach roses do just that. Rosa Rugosa is actually native to eastern Asia but has become naturalized along the entire coast of New England. The roses in this woodcut were referenced from some growing at Harbor Beach, in York Harbor, Maine.
This is a one-color woodcut. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist. They may have slight variations as is the nature of the hand-printing process. Each unframed print is packaged in a clear plastic acid-free envelope.
