Together is a hand printed linocut on wood, measuring approximately 11x7 inches, inspired by loon families swimming on the lakes around Minnesota.
To make this print the artist carved the image out of a linoleum block and then carefully inked and hand pressed onto wood. Using oil-based ink and finishing with a handmade wood frame. Each print will have unique marks of the handmade process. This makes every image an original. They are signed by the artist.

The summer months have always been spent camping at state parks or visiting lakeside cabins. Enjoying outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, campfires, and simply reading in the sunshine have become a peaceful escape from busy weekday life. These experiences also fuel the designs which are rooted in nature.
