Jack-In-The-Pulpit Woodcut Print

After visiting Audrey Christie's studio in late October, I was inspired to give up linoleum blocks and work with wood.  I had the artwork ready for what was to be my largest linoleum print yet, so I put aside the lino block and transferred the image to cherry instead.  I've only had time to make a few prints from it, but here they are hanging to dry, along with the block after printing.  The image itself is about 10" wide by 13" high.  This first printing is in a water based ink, but later, I might print it with water-soluble oil inks so that I can hand color the leaves green and the flowers a burgundy purple color.
