When I was camping on my brother’s land earlier this month, I came across a weathered piece of wood that had a large knot. I thought right away how the grain of the wood and the knot looked like the kind of sunset my brother gets to see most nights.
The piece of wood is on the large side for a woodcut, 22 x 9 inches, (56 x 23 centimeters). I carved it while I was in Colorado but had to wait to print it until I got home and could buy large paper. I spent the day today printing different versions of this woodcut. This one is printed on black Bristol paper painted with gouache which I let dry before printing.
