Black Eyed Susan's. 5 x 7 in. Original three-color linoleum block print on fine art paper by Natalia Wohletz of Peninsula Prints. Limited edition print run of 18.
The print was created in a repetitive carve-print cycle in which every new color must be carved out of the block. In this case, yellow was the first color printed followed by green and then black. The joyful blooms of Black Eyed Susan's make it a perfect gift for birthdays, weddings, housewarming and more!
The original print may be ordered with an archival white mat and backing board in a clear, recyclable bag or with a single archival white mat in a black wood gallery frame. To design a custom frame specifically styled for your space, please order the matted original and message us to start the design process.
Blank greeting cards featuring the design are available individually, as a boxed set of six or as a customized set with a personalized message inside.
About the Artist:
Draw. Carve. Print. Those are the three steps Michigan artist Natalia Wohletz takes to create linoleum block prints. After carving her first block in fall 2014, printmaking immediately became her passion. She enjoys exploring printmaking’s place on the border between art and craft, and the challenge of flipping traditional positive-negative space techniques when creating her work.
Natalia is inspired by Michigan's natural landscapes and wildlife. Many of her designs showcase scenes of Mackinac Island where she spent her childhood exploring the woods and lakeshore. Natalia's prints have been featured in ArtPrize and juried art exhibitions throughout Michigan. Her print, Trail Lookout, earned the Grand Prize in the 2019 Contemporary Art Exhibition at the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Island Art Museum. For every card and original print sold, Natalia makes a donation to the Mackinac Island Community Foundation to support the arts and environmental initiatives.
