I completed two small linocut prints during the Spring. Both were inspired by the birds that frequent my yard. I included two birds in each print perched on branches. I am most satisfied with the results and want to do additional prints using pairs of birds.

 I printed a small edition using Rives BFK paper; and began the edition by printing a blue mat.

These two prints were most rewarding to draw, carve, and print. Indeed, more images with pairs of birds are in the works!
