Say it with an “Original Print”

Original Hand Tinted Wood Cut

This actually sounds like an oxymoron.  It can’t be both original and a print but the artist is actually creating the print (woodcut) so it is.   “This technique involves the use of a plank of wood or plywood on which the artist draws a design and then carves away the wood in the parts of the picture that are not to be printed. The raised surface retains some of the pattern of the wood grain which shows up in the finished prints.”  This one is actually hand coloured and signed by the artist.  Valentines Day is the perfect time to say you care by bestowing a gift that depicts  a “fictitious” romantic scene wherein the gentleman looks like he is really is”enjoying” the dance.
