Echinacea.  5 in. x 7 in. Original seven-color linoleum block print. Limited edition size of 28. 

Every summer I am blessed with the most outrageously hot pink coneflowers growing in my garden. I love watching them bloom all summer and as yellow finches feed on their seeds in the fall.

I carve, ink and print each color by hand, layering from lightest to darkest hue.

What is the difference between a fine art print and an original block print? A fine art print is a reproductionof an original piece of art, after it has been scanned or photographed and then digitally printed. Original block prints, on the other hand, are the original pieces of art. In relief printmaking, an artist applies ink to a hand-carved block and then burnishes the inked relief onto a piece of paper. Multiple originals are possible by re-inking the carved surface and burnishing the relief onto a new piece of paper. The total number of identical prints is the edition number.
