Ripples

Ripples


'Ripples' 2012

‘Ripples’ depicts a calm pool overlooked by an old tree. For me there is nothing more serene than a shaded pool of water deep in the wilderness.  I hoped to capture the soothing power of this area in my linocut. However when I was observing the scene a small insect landed in the water and I was amazed by how something so small could cause ripples to move so far. So in the end I included the ripples in the pond to show how everything, no matter how small, has an effect on the world.
