Award Winning Limited Edition Linocut “Nieto”
Award Winning Linocut Print”Nieto” is a print made from a hand carved linoleum called a linocut. This print was especially important to me because of the subject in the piece. This is of my son when he was a baby with my Mother in Law. She looked so beautiful in the evening when the sun was setting as she kept my little one warm in her arms.
This linocut is hand carved by me, Mary, and hand printed on Riverpoint Archival 100% Cotton acid free paper with black ink.
The art printed on a 8 3/4 x 11 3/4 inch printed on 11 x 15 paper and will fit into a 11×15 frame or a matted 16 x 20 frame.
*This Award winning linocut print won third place in The San Bernardino County Fair Art Show 2016
In order to achieve the beautiful print I first need to draw the image onto a sheet of linoleum or a wood block. Then I carve away parts of the linoleum in order to leave a negative image of the print. Ink is then rolled onto the surface of the linoleum and paper is applied with pressure using a small kitchen spoon or an etching press. In result, there is a slightly imprinted print on the paper.
The paper used is Acid free and all prints are printed with permanent Ink.

As the artist I sign all my prints in pencil under the image.
