Done? Not Done?..... Done!

 Wave in Green and Blue
7.5" x 10.5", multi-block relief print

I thought this print wasn't finished and it needed another layer or twelve.

But now I think it is finished. I put it away for a few months to think about it. Recently, I dug it out again and I feel good about it. So it is done. 


It is a woodblock printed on an etching press with oil ink, like Dawn Wave, Maine Wave and Private Wave, but it is not a jigsaw and it is not a reduction.

This print was created with four (or maybe five) blocks that were cut to the same size. Each color was printed with a different block. 

This wasn't a "better" way to do it - just different. Right now, I think I prefer the reduction jigsaw thing, but I might do this again sometime.

If you love this, you can have one!

Either with pay pal (redirects to Daily Paintworks).
