Dances with Wolves
Hand painted linocut created for the Alaska Midnight Sun Tango Camp 2020. Think summer camp for adults—with hiking, lake swimming and water sports, sweat lodge, guitar and harp jams—but with 9 hours of tango dancing a day. AND, amazing Turkish food in the cook house for a global community of dancers. Sadly, the camp for 2020 was canceled due to the pandemic.
7.5 x 9 inches
Sizes listed are of the linocut images themselves; I leave an additional white border of paper on all sides.
My linocuts are printed on cotton rag paper the old-fashioned way: I carve with knives and gouges to create my imagery in slabs of linoleum. Then I roll ink over the surface, lay cotton paper on top, and crank the block through my etching press. I repeat this process for each impression in the edition, which means: If an image is in an edition of 40, I do this 40 times! After the prints dry, I generally hand-paint them, often with many layers of color, making each print a unique work of art.
