Rattlesnake Mt. Print

With a deadline of May 1st, I was happy to finish the "View from Rattlesnake Mountain" block print this week. I printed the last layers on Friday and Saturday, and framed it on Monday. This print and two others are going to be included in the Castle in the Clouds Exhibit, May through October in Moultonborough, NH. The show is called "Finding Place on Paper: Contemporary Poets and Printmakers of the Lakes Region and the White Mountains."

Here are a few recents steps in finishing this print.

The final stage (I went back in and carved out my leaves in the darker area and printed the rocks a bit lighter for the remainder of the edition)
