Silk Cut Reduction Print - Stage 2

Stage 2 and 26 prints have been cut and printed in light green. Now the plate will be cut again. The process is long and I have been making the edition over the last week or so. Today I accidentally nearly sliced my finger off using the Stanley knife. The damage was limited as the paper was safe. As for my finger, that is wrapped up and I may need to not print for a week or so.

Mothers Day - Woodcut Reduction Print

This is a woodcut print. Done with the reduction process on a press. I have to admit that unless you have your own private space, reduction work can be a challenge. This one came out the best i think. I recently gave this to a friend who loved it.
