Light of the Rock

 
 

A view of Split Rock Lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Superior. One of the infamous ‘Gales of November’ back in 1905 wrecked or sunk almost 30 ships and spurred the construction of this iconic lighthouse. It’s one of the most photographed places in Minnesota.

The lighthouse was commissioned in 1910 and became part of Split Rock Lighthouse State Park in 1971. In 2011 it received designation as a National Historic Landmark.

Woodcut with watercolor; 3.5" x 5.5"

New woodblock print - Cascade Waterfall

 
 
 

A new woodblock print, with watercolor, of a scene characteristic of the Cascade River on the north shore of Lake Superior.

This print is a one-block print in black with watercolor added after printing.

5.5" x 4"; Edition of 24; $200.
