"Bound for Pennsylvania"


"Bound for Pennsylvania"
5" x 7"
Five-layer reduction wood block print 
Oil-based Gamblin ink on white Stonehenge paper
Edition of 36

This is the print I submitted to Baren Forum for Wood Block Printmaking's Exchange No. 82. The theme for the exchange was "Exodus". About a year ago I adopted an old Redbone Coonhound. He had been found at a shelter in Georgia and would have been euthanized had he not been rescued by an organization that moves abandoned dogs from overpopulated areas to places where they are more likely to be adopted. We picked him out at the shelter in Media, Pennsylvania. He was wearing an aqua bowtie, which I guess had been put on to showcase him as a particularly handsome gentleman. He has turned out to be a very affectionate, friendly, food-driven guy, who even now seems baffled by his new life in the big city. We named him "Mutlu" which is Turkish for "happy".
