Around Valentine's Day, I set out to make a wintry, but very warm, block print all about the Heart of Winter. This idea and rudimentary art form kept me busy for many months, eventually leading on into some iconic summer images.
The rubbery speedo blocks I used, along with the uneven coverage of the water soluble inks, resulted in a lovely interplay of colors underneath with colors on the surface. I didn't mind if the registration was not perfect. I enjoyed the painterly effect. It became what I was after. Now I am looking forward to more experiments with reduction block printing, to making larger images and seeing what happens on a sturdier matrix.
