The golden hills in the golden state of California are the inspiration for this woodblock print. The hills often don't seem to be very big, but they make the giant oaks look tiny.
This is a scene from Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Having spent a lot of time in Colorado, I was inspired to make this print after seeing a painting of the scene by Swedish-born artist, Birger Sandzen, who painted throughout the American West in the early part of the 20th century.
Sandzen is known for his imaginatively colorful impressionistic style and his paintings have become widely sought-after. One of my favorite painters of the West. This print is 4.375" x 6.25", from an edition of 12.
The print is a reduction print cut from Japanese Shina wood and is 5.5" square. Hand printed on Mingeishi Natural paper.
The view across Lake Superior to Palisade Head in the distance, from the top of Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park. Sold Out.
