My latest linocut "Back to the Ark" was originally inspired by a print exchange theme "water". I also like the imagery as a recent sermon at church reminded me that God/our church home is our "ark", a place of safety and refuge during life's 'deluges'. Also the symbolism of hope that the olive branch is. Its so easy isnt it, once the work is created, to wax lyrical over its meaning meanings. Art critics & writers must have so much fun.

Anyway, here 'tis. It is printed on a cotton rag paper, using oil based ink.

and a little bit hand colouring with watercolours

Image size is approximately 8" h x 5.5" w [20.5 cm x 14 cm].
