Cana Island Lighthouse

Cana Island Lighthouse, originally uploaded by pejnolan.

This isn't how it will print. Some of the sumi ink didn't stay on the surface as I brushed it across when I was trying to see where the raised areas were. I have to wait on doing a printer's proof. I promised myself that I would do all the carving for each new block of my Bliss Bead show before I start printing. The birch woodblock is approximately 4" wide x 6" tall. This is based on a reference photo I took at the Cana Island Lighthouse in Bailey's Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin. My grandparents lived in Bailey's Harbor on Kangaroo Lake for about 20 years.
