six-color woodcut

The first summer after moving into my current home, I was overjoyed to discover peonies blooming in the yard. I love peonies for their over abundance of everything -- color, petals and perfume. Owning my own peonies to enjoy as cut flowers is a luxury that I hadn't expected but that I fully enjoy during their brief blooming season. Last summer I made this color woodcut, hopefully capturing some of the essence of these amazing flowers, to carry us through the long months between blooms.

This is a six-color woodcut. Each color of the image was carved in reverse from cherry wood, then inked and printed using hand pressure and a baren. 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.
