Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager): "Deltais an incredibly, vibrant, sumptuous print from Carol Summers. The red is even more bold and rich in person. This woodblock shows many of Carol's unique printing techniques. The waves at the top of the image have beautiful transitions, which were made by printing on both sides of the paper. Solvent is sprayed on the sheet after printing to cause the ink to become an integral part of the paper, like a dye, and giving them almost a watercolor effect and translucency. There is perfect contrast between the texture of these waves and the solid red and heavy blue, showing the mastery in his own style."

Text: "It was the start of only a small thing, but, it is only the sum of many small things that makes something great."
Recommended by Nikki (Fine Print Photographer & Content Publisher): "Andy Farkas gently draws viewers into this fairytale-like scene with his delicately carved woodcut that only fills a portion of the soft paper. The only color present is the transparent blue ink of the small letterpress text, floating above the scene. The simplicity of the language and composition give both visual and emotional space for viewers to breathe and digest the full impact of his message; and soon becomes a meditative experience."
