to get to Renee's woodblocks just click on the Gallery link and then
choose 'Woodblock'.

very nice work, I like the triptych's showing the different seasons....
are these done with oil inks or with water-based pigments ?

thanks...Julio Rodriguez (Skokie, Illinois)

To add to the paper sites already listed, also check out

Also, to the person who was having the fibers of the paper stick to the block, are you printing hanga-style? If so, I was wondering if you are using too much pigment and/or paste on the block.

best wishes
