On a windy, drizzly day there were Dark Eyed Junco birds hanging out in the tree branches.  As I was watching this one bird he saw me and immediately turned around.  A gust of wind came by and he held on even tighter to the wet branch.

A reduction print is a print using one print block what is carved repeatedly depending upon how many colors will be used. White areas in the print is the first to be carved out of the print block. The next lightest color will be printed, then those areas will be carved out and the next color printed. This process is repeated until the last color is printed.  Because of this reductive method of printing, the whole edition needs to be printed at once. At the end of the print run, the block is completely destroyed.
