Six in the Morning

Before each painting, the prolific folk painter Grandma Moses started with her process of finding a suitable picture frame. Once she discovered one she liked, she would arrange her canvas to fit the frame, and off she went!
With linocuts, the entire process begins with the menial task of cutting a piece of Battleship linoleum to a certain size. After that, it's impossible to ignore the piece, and so conceiving and carving begin very quickly as the block calls out to be transformed.
This circle linocut (sized by tracing around a large salad bowl) is 12 by 12 inches, titled after that lovely time of the morning (at least, for those of us who are early risers!) and carved in the beautiful Piedmont Park, Atlanta. Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week-and-month!

Love the flow of movement and the small surreal nature of the piece. Beautiful work.
