Had a big newsletter day over the weekend ~ the "GARDEN" Print color has been finalized!
Series: LIFE OF LEISURE 18" x 24" Color Woodcut Print on Ivory Somerset Paper
Paul Roden + Valerie Lueth, 2011.
From the careful sprinkling of a handful of seeds into sun-baked soil, a garden grows. Climbing bean spires, exotic purply eggplants, dancing star-shaped cucumber leaves, magenta-ripe beet tubers, crisp, tall stalks topped with sunflowers and fanning zucchini fronds, the familiar spheres of tomato fruits ripening on the vine ~ the magic of self grown harvest. All yours for the taking…
A carpet of grassy wilderness rings the rising golden mound upon which this delicately pruned "GARDEN" rests. A tabby cat peers at a rabbit munching on a sprouting bush; a snake slithers through the grass blades. The "GARDEN" presents an age-old scene, a testament to our ability to provide for ourselves, nudging nature to our benefit. A rope lashed fence defines its borders, its entrance ungated and a path to its center set in log slices. Tools and baskets, a pump and a bucket, and an assortment of small decorative flourishes (a golden wind bell, a hollow gourd birdhouse, dangling ornaments) lend a human touch to the artful arrangement of foliage, both edible and decorative in this 5 block color woodcut print.
Prints go into production this week. All pre-orders for the "GARDEN" print will ship out the week of May 7th. Pre-order rate applies only until production is completed, so now's your last chance to score one of these very lovely woodcuts at a nicely reduced intro price!
Liven' up a wall in your home with green goodness year-round!
