Relief - Woodcut Print
Digital version of sold-out original woodcut, image specifications:
Ink: Mixes of red/black, purple/blue, plus the three process colors to make the rainbow
Paper: Beech Grove Paperworks Old Masters Blue (Moonlight)
Process: This is a "puzzle" piece, in which the block was sawn in 2 pieces prior to printing. In the first state (Rainmaker I), I only printed the image in black ink. The full color version has two "fountain" rolls, in which two colors of ink are placed side by side on the slab and allowed to mix as the ink is rolled. The rainbow was a triple fountain roll, with the 3 process colors (red, yellow, blue).
The image is from an ongoing series about people in the desert, mythical and real...or surreal? In any case, there is much to do in the desert, usually gathering (or making) food and water and seeking shelter. Incidentally, this fellow was particularly successful this year (2005) because the Southwest has broken every record in the books as far as rainfall.
