The second in the series, well actually it was the first plate cut: "Lasting Hope." Again limited to 50 but printed in gold ink this composition, like I mentioned before, uses positive and negative space, but doesn't lead the eye around quite as well as "Ringing Joy." I do, however, like the contrast between the organic shapes and the geometric. I find myself making different connections across the card... Am I really critiquing a Christmas card?! I suppose so, but then I enjoy composition and thinking about the things I see.
I am not sure it is worth mentioning as so few are made and they'll be gone before long, but you can drop me a line on email if you'ld like some and I have any left. They are $3.50 ea. and 3 for $10.
I am an artist currently working and living in California. My time is divided between teaching art and two studios, one in California and another in North Dakota.I spend my time during the summer months at the North Dakota studio.
