(12 1/8 x 16 overall)
||Very Fine. Strong pigments; highly visible woodgrain; crisply printed on hand-made Japanese paper. (Small

titled "Talented Oregon Printmaker -- Kevin Clark" to

||Delightful and delicate--this print depicts bamboo leaves over-hanging a pond. The "circular water pattern" is, in fact,
all acheived through the skillful use of highly visible natural "woodgrain."
Once full edition of 80 prints completed, Clark "strikes his initials" into the block's face to ensure
NO future printings.
