 “Night Heron”, Linocut, 7×8

This is the lino that I cut on the Friday of the Artalicious Festival.  

This design was originally tried as a glaze on a vase during a collaboration with James Freeman.  But the design melted during firing.  So here it is again in lino.  I really like this one.  I used Akua Color again and it is great.  I think I found a new ink.  The paper is Rives BFK.  I use a Richeson Baby Press for printing.  I’m not sure I will color this one.  I like it just the way it is…but who knows.  I change my mind a lot.  

The inspiration for this design comes from the AuSable River, the summer moon over Devils Lake, moonlight and crickets.
