Hand-Painted Edition of 10!

I have finally completed my variable edition of 10 hand-painted prints and am very pleased with the results. Here is the suite of 10 Mandala 2 Leaf prints which may be seen individually here. They are actually on white paper (one mandala per printed sheet), but I thought it would be interesting to see them all together on a black background.

Leaf Mandala

Leaf Mandala–the 5-color reduction print was finally completed a couple of weeks ago at Santo Press. Master printer Brent Bond did a truly phenomenal job on this print and though it took longer than I anticipated, it was worth waiting for. Leaf Mandala is comprised of a laser-engraved key block (the black lines) with 2 hand-cut linoleum blocks for the 4 colors printed in reduction. The resulting image appears to be 6 colors because of overlapping color areas. It is exactly as I envisioned it would be, so I couldn’t be happier.

Leaf Mandala (color); 2019; 5-color laser-engraved and hand cut multi-block linocut; 16 inch diameter on 23 x 22 inch paper; edition of 10; $650.00.

In case you are interested, here is what the colors looked like prior to printing the key block. This is a working registration sample, and was not one of the finished prints. 

 

There is also an edition (of 5) in black ink:Leaf Mandala; 2019; laser engraved linocut; edition of 5; 16 inch diameter on 23 x 22 inch paper; $400.00

And don’t forget, there are many iterations of this print that are hand-painted with watercolors. You can see 5 of them all right here but this one is my favorite–so far, that is. I’ve got 5 more to paint!
