The next five blog posts will introduce five new woodcuts for late winter 2014.
The first, "Polar Bear," was released at the Holiday Open House Exhibit in Salt Lake City. Besides being an appropriate subject for a black ink woodcut, the bear is also the tragically popular 'poster animal' for climate change. The minimal title "Polar Bear" was selected from a longer list-- Great White Bear, Ice Bear, Snow Bear, Rain Bear, the Last Polar Bear, On Thin Ice, Endangered, Extinct, etc. (I have a lot of time to think of titles while I am carving the maple block and printing the prints.) The owners of the prints may choose their own titles. Click on the image to go to the Woodcut Gallery for buying information.
