This is a small 4 by 6 inch linocut, carved in moments of wonder and humility. : )

I followed you over to your blog from mine-I LOVE your linocuts. I've been meaning to get back into them as it's been a long, long time since I've done any. Inspiring!

Beautifully balanced and graphic. I love the leaves at the bottom. Do you print on a press or by hand?
