Moonlight Swallows by Lori Biwer-Stewart
This is an original linocut by Lori Biwer-Stewart of Osage, Iowa.
An aerial view of an evening landscape with an evening full of stars. A flock of sparrows fly above the farm under the moon.
"Moonlight Swallows" is an original linoleum created and hand pulled in my studio on heavy weight Stonehenge printmaking paper. Each is hand painted with lightfast inks, so each print may vary slightly.
Linocut is a type of relief print. Relief printing is a technique where a piece of paper is “stamped” by the top surface of the plate painted in ink. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife and chisels.
