There were no words, if I remember,
But something subtler, deeper, Love.
The night it was a cold December
With a shiv'ry, silver moon above -
But in our hearts - the flame of love!

Production: I scanned page 4 of Two in Arcadia, 1907 Brentanos, by Lucine Finch and redesigned each of the 5 color separations to facilitate printing and clarify the image. I cut a few areas of white to more firmly suggest snow drifts, and darkened the sky to suggest the poem’s nighttime mood. I altered the color palette by also lightening the foreground drift to set it off from the framing element, and reddened the mid-ground elements to force a repoussoir and increase the depth to the image. Using laserprints of each I coated blocks of unmounted linoleum [McClain's Printmaking Supplies] cut to size, with 10% mat gel medium / water and placed image face down. After drying thoroughly, I rubbed off the paper layer to preserve the carbon image. I cut each block and printed, one color per day until completed.
