Loon & Chick (original linocut)


LOON & CHICK is an original linocut print, created with oil-based Cranfield inks on your choice of two different papers: “natural” is dark cream, a beautiful Japanese gampi fiber Kitakata paper from Awagami Studios;  “white” is a cotton rag paper by BFK Rives.* Each copy is printed by hand in my studio in Blue Hill, Maine, from a hand-drawn and carved block in battleship gray linoleum. Signed and dated by the artist.

8 x 10 inch paper, image is approximately 5 x 7 inches.

Open edition, unnumbered. Because each print is an original, please expect minor variations in the embossing, texture, and inking as compared to the samples shown. These are unique characteristics of the hand-printing process that make your print one of a kind.

*The white BFK Rives paper is currently out of stock, January 2023. If you’d like to be notified when it’s available again, send me a request here.
