Woodblock Printing - the work of Sabra Field

i cant not believe that i havent posted about this wonderful artist before!! im not sure how that happened, especially since i have one of her gorgeous prints hanging in my house - i look at every day! the one below is the one I have-
The artist is Sabra Fields, and a few years ago i had the distinct pleasure of meeting her at her home studio where she walked me through her art making practice. She uses a version of ancient woodblock printing. Her home, an old farm house nestled into a valley in the GREAT state of Vermont - along with the field off the back and beyond that a pond where otters can be seen romping around is more than inspirational.
She is an artist who followed her heart and passion and has been able to create beautiful works for more than 30 years! i cant express enough how moved i am by her and her work - it really strikes a deep cord with me - i get tingles looking at these prints
im really into the snow at night prints if you havent noticed - it reminds me of so many of the reasons i loved living there - that crispy sound fresh snow makes on a freezing cold vermont night - there is no better sound

she makes a lot of different prints, not just of the rolling vermont landscape - i love this little red boat and the artichoke too!
