This is adapted from a photograph that I took a few years ago while taking
a morning stroll along one of the inner trails in Stanley Park, Vancouver.
While I was standing in a sunny glade admiring the morning sunshine, an owl
flew past me and perched on a nearby tree. I took a few pictures of it,
and it followed me along the trail for a while, perhaps looking for breakfast.
That was the first time I'd seen an owl of this species.
The edition consists of 30 prints on Japanese Kozuke White Heavy paper, 65 gsm,
hand printed by the artist with Caligo Safe Wash Furnace Carbon Black
relief printing ink, using an antique nipping press. All prints are
editioned, titled, signed and dated by the artist in pencil, and monogrammed
in the image: S-. A torn strip of Japanese Unryru paper was laid across
the inked block over the log prior to placing the print paper on the block.
The kozo fibers give a nice effect to the old bark of the fallen tree.
