This linoleum-block print was based on a sketch I made of a pine near Parry Sound, Ontario. It grows in a fissure of the time-smoothed, earthworm-pink rocks on the shore of Georgian Bay. I collect scraps of flooring, discarded wooden roof shakes, and assorted treasures to cut designs into, and print by hand. I've been trying to invent a good, non-toxic ink, but to date all the recipes I've brewed have stunk (both literally and figuratively).
