“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.
