I printed "Three Graces" and the wood engraving will soon be available at the Artistree Gallery in Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin. I will get to updating and improving my website after I return from spending a few weeks in Washington and Oregon, visiting friends as well as attending the Wood Engraving Network Workshop.
I finally got around to printing a wood engraving that I have been making, on and off, for over a year. I am still thinking of a title as the ink dries, thinking either, "Stone" or "Nestled".
I was asked what was the inspiration, and the answer was finding photos I took at Little Girl's Point, on Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, years ago (2011?).
And it starts, getting Tony Drehfal wood engraver, my business, started this 2018. I have joined Artistree Gallery in Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin, starting in June, though I don't think I appear on their website just yet.
I am working on a few blocks concurrently, hoping to complete the prints by mid to late May. Three Graces which I include a working photo of here, is moving along. The block is now inked so there is no longer the toned with a wash of ink, drawn on, and engraved look that you see above. Now the block is only black & white so I will see an image closer to what the final print will look like. Oh, the photo here is a scan of the block which does much better with detail than what I can shoot with my digital camera.
