Daisy, linocut fine art print
This is a very special print for many reasons, but mainly the subject- my beloved dog Daisy. I've wanted to do a print of her since I first fell into letterpress, but it took some years for me to build my carving skills and gain the confidence that I could do her justice. The composition comes from a picture I took of her at home, snoozing away. Since she loved sitting outside, I put her underneath my favorite tree, a birch I planted when we first moved into my house.
This two color linocut is a variable edition, having been printed on two different types of paper. I also plan to do another color combination with a golden yellow. While the lime green references the hope and energy of spring, the gold represents autumn, and the slowing down of life around us.
This lime/black combination was printed on two papers:
Mohawk Via Vellum "flax", 80lb - a beautiful natural colored paper with noticeable fibers running through it. Edition of 100
Cranes Lettra Flourescent White, 300gm - a soft, 100% cotton paper that takes a deep impression and creates a velvety ink. Edition of 25
Print measures 8” wide x 10” tall for easy framing and matting.
As with all hand printed items, variations in color and texture may occur.
