Art: Palm Tree.

Palm Tree, Triptych. (Linocut block print. Printing ink on cardstock paper. Three individual prints with each print measuring 4x6").

This was a Christmas present for Juliana's mom (who is decorating her new place with a tropical theme). While not in the conventional sense, it's a reduction print of sorts. I first made the dense print (far right). I then carved out some of the bottom to make the middle print. And then removed some more of the block to create the sparse print on the left. When I framed it, I actually stacked them on top of one another to form a vertical column, with the print growing darker as it went down (i.e. left to right went top to bottom).
