The "GARDEN" Woodcut Print
GARDEN Woodcut Print by Tugboat Printshop
(ABOVE) The "GARDEN" Woodcut, complete in full color! A 18" x 24" print on Ivory Somerset Paper printed from 5 intricately drawn and carved wood blocks (SEE PROCESS PICS)!

The golden hour just before dusk wraps this teeming image of a "GARDEN" with warm, hearty color. Delicately carved patterns creep up wooden trellises, cascade across grassy patches, and flutter through spindly treetops ~ the layering of block printed color glowing & mindboggling! Detail after detail to stumble upon and enjoy in this complex and vibrant portrait of a humble but fantastic garden. Visit our online shop to order your limited edition copy!

A labor of love to complete, seeing the "GARDEN" in person brings another level of appreciation for the print. So why not swing by this coming SATURDAY to take a peek? More details above and on FACEBOOK!

Not local to Pittsburgh? We've got bigger, juicier photos new online ~ TAKE A LOOK!
