Obed Edom, Hand-Colored Linocut

dsc_0154 A color version of the Obed Edom linocut, painted with watercolor on 250gsm BFK Rives paper.  The intent is to make at least 10 or 12 of these.  Each one will be different, I imagine.  Already I see things I would like to do differently.  This one is for sale on our Etsy store.

Of Past and Future Prints

Plenty of two-dimensional work today:  First, some hand-colored prints of Jacob Wrestling the Angel of God.  A few of these are available if they strike you.  Next, are some studies for a large, 18″ x 12″, lino-cut of Obed Edom.  Finally, a few more prints and drawings.

Finally and thankfully, I was engaged by the keen and mysterious richness of this astonishing poem , from Tom Hirons yesterday.  As a rule, I generally do not to link to other work here, so Sometimes a Wild God represents an exception.
