Shoji Lanterns exchange print

Artist: Viza Arlington
Title: Shoji Lanterns
paper size: 4 X 10 inches
image size: 3 X 9 inches
edition: 100
Black oilbased ink woodcut on Hosho paper with chine colle using tissue paper and a little pastel in the light cast by the lanterns printed by hand with a baren. I didn't carve the light cast by the lanterns i just wiped those areas with a rag.
These are the solar shoji lanters that hang in my garden, a gift from my mom;) I love looking out at them from my window at night sometimes i imagine a little cricket singing in the spotlight.
