Matilija Poppy at Sunrise

This print is from a block that I thought was going to be so warped as to be unusable.  I started engraving it while I was at the Mid-State Fair in 100+ degree heat when I noticed the block had developed a bow.  But because I had nothing else to work on, I kept on playing with it.  Fortunately it only ended up only about one millimeter from being perfectly flat, and I was able to shim the center of the block and able to pull some good prints.
