A baby boy pauses in his play to look at a board book. His long lashes lie on his cheeks, his curls brush the back of his jumpsuit.
His plump little hand rests on his foot. What do the little ones think about as they gaze at pictures in a board book? We don't know. All we know is that this is where the love of books begin, in babyhood.
This is my newest linocut print. It is designed and hand carved by me. I hand printed it on high quality rag printing paper and colored it with watercolor paint, so each one is unique. My model was a sweet, tiny friend of mine. I remember that cold day when I took his picture. He was warm and cozy inside the house, sitting on the rug with his blocks and his book. All was quiet and at peace in his home as he gazed and gazed at his little board book.
If you want to see more of my linocut prints, go to my etsy store. There is a link to "primroses" in the column on the right. love, Beth
