Artist's comments ...

Kozo (goyu) paper, scandinavian birch plywood.

This was an ambitious print for me, more blocks and colors and impressions than I'd tried before. My idea was to have each section of the block printed twice, with the shape both directly defined and suggested by overlay. I had cut a block with furrows, to be printed in a darker earth tone, but decided I liked the general lack of detail, and that furrows didn't add significantly (which is why that section was only printed once). Also, it took longer to print than I anticipated; four nights I arose at three to work, and perhaps the poor light at that hour obscured my vision.
