These three Garry oak trees sit overlooking the ocean from South Pender Island in British Columbia.
It was a cold, crisp day when I made a sketch for this print.   All the leaves were gone, leaving the contorted branches against the stark sky.

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.
