"New England Clapboard"

"New England Clapboard (pronounced "cla-berd") is the most technically complex I've done to date. It utilizes two blocks printed separately. One block was for the warm colors and the other for the cool colors in the composition. More than once during the period of printing this image, I would find myself awake in the middle of the night working out how I was going to solve the challenges of the next day's labor. The classic New England house is derived from one in Athens, Vermont. The tree is emblematic of autumn in Vermont and created for this composition.
