Morning Harmony

This is my longest and narrowest completed piece yet, 13 by 24 inches. It's an embrace of the perpetual song, the orchestra of motion, we touch and feel every day.
One of my favorite woodcut artists is Munakata Shiko. His large pieces with beautiful titles (like "In Praise of Flower Hunting" and "Cherry Blossoms in Mist") are bold and unfathomly gentle black and white prints, reaching deep into the spirit. From Munakata directly, "The life of a woodblock print, in which I have placed my far-reaching spiritual belief, does not come from the life of the board itself; it is the mystery created through a single point and a single line."
Thank you for visiting and have a great week!
