Sitting at the window, a young woman cuddles her cat, watching the spectacle of swirling autumn leaves in a gust of wind.
The golden amber ink for this print is hand-mixed, with tones ranging from vibrant mustard and goldenrod to deeper honey and butterscotch and hints of burnt sienna, evoking the chromatic blast of fall leaves.
To make my art prints, I transfer my original sketch onto a lino block which I cut out with special gouges. I hand pull my art prints on a press, one at a time, so each linocut is a unique and original piece of art. Slight differences in each print are inherent in the process.
The print is sold unmounted and unframed but fits in a standard 18 cm x 24 cm frame.
