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.

Geometry of the Wounded Savior

Thomas Grisaille02

This grisaille (grayscale underpainting) of the interaction of Thomas and Jesus and the gathered disciples and their community, has been slowly developing over the past three years, the drawing took about two years before that.  I feel like the end of this particular phase is finally in sight on the distant horizon.  I look forward to seeing the structure fully unfold and ultimately to the beginning the glazing of colors.

Repeats for Commerce

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.
