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!

The print is a 2-color laser-cut linoleum block printed by Brent Bond at Santo Press. Stay tuned–there may be a few more prints in this Psychedelic series. Plans are in the works for some small editions using decorative chine collé papers.

This is the first in a series of three prints. It is a one-color relief print completed this week by Brent Bond of Santo Press. Another laser-cut linoleum block, Feather Flower–Red was hand-inked and printed in an edition of 10. The second iteration in the series is being printed now and should be ready to be signed in a couple of days. It is a 2-color print in vivid colors of cobalt blue and chartreuse. The third edition will be a 3-color reduction print. Flower Feather–Red is the 64th edition Brent and I have completed in just 2 years–setting a world record, I think. We are on fire!
Feather Flower–Red is available for $400 (unframed).
