Tree of Endless Branches


An 9 by 12 inch linocut printed on beautiful Lokta paper, used for centuries in Nepal. Many great epics were recorded on this strong, yet delicate paper. May the traditions of the devotional ancients bless my humble printmaking attempts. Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE the tree--strong black silhouette, and the different texture of the grass. It's simple and complex at the same time.

I love how you filled the top with the intricate branch patterns!

One of my favourite places to walk is the harbour and this tree looks like it belongs there. I love it. Trees evoke such a strong feeling in me. Lovely work.

Wow, you keep branching out with your lino cuts Nicola (yes, bad pun intended)! This might be your most beautiful work yet, though I probably think that every time I see your latest.

Oh, really nice! Linocuts are on my list of things to try. If my efforts look even half as good as yours, I'll be happy. Thanks for inspiring me.

I tried linocut for the first time last year. If the pattern is intricat it will take some time to cut but it is very contemplating to do. My motif was also trees. You have executed your motif very well!
