'Save the Rockweed'

(Click image to pop-up an enlargement)

Artist's comments ...

Block: Very old white pine
Paper: Tableau
Ink: Van Son oil base plus

Hand rubbed with teflon baren, then burnished with a brass spoon; the very old pine plank is planed but is much rougher than modern planning, so the additional direct pressure of the brass spoon is necessary for a good black print. Rockweed grows beneath the high tide water level and is habitat for lots of creatures--including seals and mermaids--all of whom are nude!
