Letchworth State Park


2 in stock


An original hand carved linocut print of the upper falls at Letchworth State Park in New York state. I was inspired by the mist surrounding the Upper Falls on our last visit there on a rainy, overcast, Sunday afternoon. So I took a picture, made a sketch, carved a block, and made some prints. (Then carved it some more, printed, carved a little more, and made some final prints 🙂

Printed with Speedball Professional relief ink on 5″x7″ white 98lb / 160g acid-free paper. Paper cropped to fit a standard 5×7″ frame (not included).

For linocuts, each block is hand-carved with various carving tools. After carving, to create a print, ink is rolled onto the block surface with a roller (brayer) and then the paper is applied and hand-burnished to transfer the ink to the paper.

My prints are printed with water-based ink on Canson or Strathmore acid-free paper. Each piece is titled and signed in pencil on the front. If you’d prefer an unsigned or unlabeled print, let me know, since that’s possible for most prints.

Each linoleum block is hand-carved and each print is hand-printed, which means there may be variations in texture or color between prints. This is a unique characteristic of the medium and part of the charm of linocut prints.

You will receive the print unframed, in a plastic sleeve, inside a cardboard mailer envelope.
