Block Print a Day 3

        Here’s another shift, from high-priced gallery art world to something more like the craft of wood block printing - an image in which the marks of carving are not hidden and the style looks homespun instead of slick and professional.  It’s also a shift from seeing the apple as its own subject to seeing it as part of a story, an everyday object in the lives of everyday people.  And isn’t that a miraculous thing?
