Two New Winter Linocut Prints

Here are a couple new winter linoleum block prints:

Both linocuts were made using the reduction technique and have two layers of color. I'm thinking of calling the top print 'Last Run' and you might notice the chairlift above the mountains and tree line. With two small kids, I haven't gotten a chance to ski or snowboard lately - oh, I miss it! Snowshoeing has taken their place in recent years. Speaking of skiing, yesterday, I got distracted online (surprise, surprise) and saw a photo of the Dalai Lama riding a chairlift, and something about it - the incongruity of it all - was a total joy. There's an accompanying story on Slate, about his experience seeing skiing for the first time. Good stuff.
