“Mending Nets” artist proof, M. Gilbertsen, 2010 – Hand-pulled linocut

 

M. Gilbertsen, 8×10 Hand-pulled Linocut 2010
Inspired by photo of my husband, a commercial fisherman, mending nets on deck after a day of fishing.  Added the fishies to enhance the composition and so you could make sense of what exactly he was doing.  This is one of my favorite pieces.  Probably could use a bit o’ framing.

 

I would really like to try this with oil ink so that I could color it or re-attempt with a reduction print method of blocking or coloring the final piece…
