Here is my golden retriever, Winnie, about to leap off a rock into a churning sea. It may look dangerous, but she only thinks about how much fun it is to swim!

This hand rubbed print was created with an easy cut linoleum block that was first cut into two pieces - this makes it a "jigsaw" print.  

Next I carved each piece, inked them separately and re-joined them to print the first layer. Then I carved out more shapes for the next color on each block. Removing more and more material from  one block to create different color layers is called the "reduction" method.

These prints are hand-signed and numbered (1/25, 2/25, etc.) in pencil on the front and back.

Each piece of the block was inked and printed 6 times for 12 total colors!
