This print is for an upcoming exhibit, “Who Do We Think We Are?” at the Studios on the Park in Paso Robles. This is my first print using Swiss pear wood for the block. I have been looking for pear wood for years, and now I have a five to ten year supply. It is denser than cherry and carves beautifully because it holds a line superbly and cleanly. After using it for this print, I can understand why it is the preferred wood for block prints.
On a personal note, I only have to become a toxic chemical dump three more times! Life is good.
