Sailing Wood Block Prints: Port Hole

If you are friends with McCarty you may be a lucky recipient of one of 24 Wood Block Prints of a sail boat viewed through a port hole, that i made for his holiday gifts.

The Port Hole series is inspired by our Caribbean sailing adventures.

I used Purple Speedball block print ink, Distress Stain, Gelatos, Watercolors, Acrylic paint on Hamilco white card stock. Each 7″x5″ print is unique.

Here are a few shots while in process…

Vacation Inspiration
