This week and last week are filled with illustration work and teaching, so I am having to go to the "archives" for my post. This is a print I did quite some time ago of one of my favorite places to be "Smith Rock State Park". It's a subject I've drawn, painted and printed many times! As stated, this is a woodblock print that I carved three different blocks for, then printed. I've always done my relief block printing by hand, so registration is always one of those things I've held my breath to see if it worked! Actually, it's not that hard to create a system to register just a few blocks. More than that, though, to me it gets tricky!

I, too, do my registration by hand. What is that a little like....flying without a net? A little adrenaline rush in the hum drum life of an artist!
