Description

About this piece:
I met Jeanine Hathaway in 2004 at a show of my prints in Eugene, Oregon. She was writing poetry while on sabbatical leave from teaching at Wichita State University in Kansas. It turned out that she was also my neighbor, renting a room down the street and we became friends. Jeanine was inspired by seeing my woodcut diptych titled, Remembering, Forgetting, and wrote the poem, XO, On what might have been our anniversary. I created my artist’s book, inspired by her poem and printed from the woodblocks I created for Remembering, Forgetting, thus completing our circle of creativity and inspiration.

Multiple block woodcut on both front and back of the pages. Text is ink jet printed on organdy fabric.
