I created this piece to portray the Loon. This majestic bird plays the role of Earth-Diver, being the only animal to succeed at diving to the ocean floor to bring up earth for the creator or culture hero to make land with.
My inspiration is the beauty of the Loon as a symbol of harmony, generosity, and peace.
This monotype is a many layered woodblock print. I carve the blocks and handprint each piece. The result is a unique handprinted piece of art.
The heavy weight paper is crisp white and can be hung framed or unframed
.This piece is the same size and format as other prints in my collection, "Lobster", "Beach Plum" and " Oysters" for the possibility of displaying together.
Each print is unique and considered a monotype.
There is a clean 2-3 inch white margin of paper framing the image.
I am a printmaker working in a variety of printmaking techniques. Wood block, screen printing, mono- types and dry point. Works on paper are my medium.
