Came back from Iceland, completely blown away by the landscapes -- especially the glaciers. Dark ash created lines, accentuated peaks and dips. Brought these to a woodblock printing workshop with Karen Gelardi, Anna Helper, and Megan Brady at Waterfall Arts in Belfast, Maine.

Below are some process pics and pieces from the workshop.

started off looking at photographs I'd taken & sketching shapes -- first on paper, then onto wood
