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.
Obed Edom, in the form of a 12″ x 18″ linocut, is for sale on our Etsy Store finally. Right now, I have 5 impressions available. Also posted there, are a few bowls which I believe are worthy of consideration. Thanks everyone for your support, encouragement and attention. If you missed last week’s post, please give it a look. I thought it was a good one, but it sort of went under the radar- or perhaps it wasn’t as nice as I fancied.
For many years the story and name of Obed Edom have struck deeply within me. His story in the bible is pretty short. As with many things I have tried to make my work a path into exploring this mystery. This print is now finished. To go along with its completion, I have included a song that I wrote a number of years ago of the same subject and with the same goal in mind. I hope that they are moderately fitting accompaniment to a powerful story and special man who I know very little about.

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.
