‘Pineapple’, woodcut, “5x6”, printed on white rice paper with burnt umber Daniel Smith oil-based ink.
The Pineapple War has concluded with a peaceful resolution. I’m very pleased with the results and like the ability to cut fine detail in wood which is much trickier in lino.
Available here.

La Guerra de la Pina ha concluido con una resolucion pacifica. Estoy contentisima con los resultados. Encuentro que me gusta la habilidad de hacer cortes finitas en madera que es mas dificil en linoleo.

Your perseverance paid off there, Diane -- that's a handsome pineapple! I hope you do many more botanical works.

Thanks, David... As a matter of fact, I've been going through old photos and drawing of tropical flowers and plants with that very idea! I love everything about working with wood, from the plotting and planning to the cutting and printing. Each stage has a different personality and appeal...

Wow, this is a real beauty! I love it! Bravo on your design, and variations in your cutting , and your composition. And the subject. And the color, yes, the color of the ink is great too! Just terrific.

Thanks, Jen... I was amazed at how much detail all-shina wood allows.
