This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.

"All Lights Be On", my first white line woodcut

The high school class 9-12 really liked this technique. Pine boards were cut with a V groove using an X-acto. The paper is taped to the board. Each color wash is printed one at a time.

One perk of teaching is being able to explore new techniques. White line woodcut is an American form of printmaking started on Cape Cod in the early 1900's. Based on Japanese wood block technique it is a quick and fun way to explore flat design patterns and variety in color.
