Description by the Artist:

Recently, I visited Mt. Reiner, and I was inspired by the Sound of Music qualities the mountain had on that clear day. This print is an impression of that distant mountain, and is made to capture those whimsical qualities in a simple way.

This color reduction woodblock print involves working with only one block of wood to overlay colors over time. Colors were printed ten separate times, and with each pass a little more of the block was carved away until only a few specks of color remain. This experimental technique is a creation made by literally destroying the art medium through the process, it perfectly captures the evanescent quality of the subject matter.
