Landscape on Wood

woodlan2woodlan3 woodland4woodland5

A landscape painting in ink on a found round piece of wood, supposed to be for a chopping board. I just added a single D hook to the back and it was ready to hand. I have really enjoyed experimenting with Ink on wood, I think it may be the start of a new series…

The Forest by a Lake is an imaginative landscape, I went with the natural grain of the wood to inspire my image.

Red Sky at Night- Ink Landscape of Red Maple Trees in Snow

I think of this landscape as an experiment in painting using one colour tone, like black and white, but instead with red (though I have added a few different hues into the mix).

Reading a little about red maple trees, they are traditionally connected with ideas about positive thinking, balance, promise and practicality. Native American wisdom says that a Maple Tree flourishes from human love and attention.

I’m afraid I may have to give up painting snow soon as January is nearly over.

Snowy River, New York

I’ve started working on some small canvases and turned to some photographs I took during teh snow in New York this March, for inspiration. For this painting, I used this photograph:

And the next day I was in Central Park and the snow had all been melted away. Every time I visit New York there’s something new and incredible to photograph.

I haven’t made linocuts in a long time, but they are a lot of fun.

I got some colored murano paper over Christmas, and am looking forward to trying it out with different prints. I added the owl by hand- I like the potential to do lots of different things with your designs after printing.
