"Grandiflora" — new reduction block.

Quick update: this is the finished "Grandiflora", debuted at the 2Cool Art Show in Gulfport, FL last weekend. Seven colors on Rives BFK paper.

From the previous December blog update:

I'm midway into a reduction linoleum block I started printing in November; now done with the blue ink as of last week and on to the green. I was hoping to have this done by the Palm Harbor show, but didn't want to rush things. It takes at least two days of drying the 26 prints in the edition before I can soak the paper again and run the next color. The blue background is now all carved out and I'm ready for the green of the magnolia leaves.
