Frodo

I watched the Lord of the Rings again with my daughter and wanted to capture this pinicle moment in the film.  I read the books as a kid and literally cried out and yelled when I read this part of the book.  Such a strong a powerful moment showing human nature and your will.

Limited edition of 100 run in lightfast blockprint green ink.  Special request can be made to run it in blockprint flat black ink.

Elisha

I wanted to do a homage to Elisha and the miracles he performed. Top left, a miracle where he saved a group of prophets by fixing a poisonous soup. Top middle: The top room where Elisha was given room board. The main house below has the families son who has just passed away. Elisha lays on him three times and the boy is revived. Spirit of the boy is shown reentering the house by lightning. Left middle and bottom: when Elijah the prophet is taken up to heaven he drops his cloak for Elisha to “pick up where he left off”. When Elisha returns to the river he strikes the water with his cloak and the water parts, just like it did for Elijah. Bottom middle: the bear represents a unique time where a group of men and boys were yelling obscenities at Elisha and he calls a curse down on them. Bears come out of the woods and maul around 40 of the men and boys. The last miracle on the bottom right is where Elisha fed a group of 100 with a few loaves of barley bread and a few barley grains. Elisha was bald but I took liberties that he would keep whatever hair he had (on the sides). 🙂

Limited edition of 50.

Psalms 41-80

15″ x 24″ block print on cold press. ©Brian M. White 2016. For 40 days of Psalms 2 Book available on amazon.

A series of prints done during Lent 2016. In the church calendar Lent is a time before Easter for preparing your hearts for the day. Each day for 40 days I read a Psalm, drew out my interpretation of it, cut it out of linoleum, and block printed it. The process was intense and hard to follow each day. As I did more and more of the pieces I realized I wanted to see them together. I was able to fasten the whole group together and run a few prints.
