Japanese Woodblock Print
21" x 29 " (53.3 x 73.7 cm)

In this invented landscape I've imagined autumn 1620 in the Connecticut River valley, just a few months before the arrival of the Mayflower some 135 miles away. In 1620 both the people and the town in this area were called Norwottuck, which means "in the midst of the river."

17.5" x 26" (44.5 x 66 cm) image size
made with 5 shina plywood blocks
29 hand-rubbed layers on Nishinouchi paper.
