Just Keep Swimming

Just Keep Swimming

Today we look back at 2021 when I was still carving the printing plate for Smudge Herring: Just Keep Swimming.

It is the largest lino-cut I have made, I think.  I carved the entire image onto one plate, then cut out the fish so that I could ink them up individually and lay them in their background without any ink, adding texture only to the paper.  I am still quite pleased with the results!

You can find it in the online shop HERE, and I am happy to say that the new Mental Health & Addictions Centre in St. John's will be hanging one for their patients to see.  I hope it brings a sense a calm to anyone gazing at it.
