“Island and Sky” is based on a small pencil sketch made on a hot day sitting at the roadside of Megunticook Lake in Maine. I loved the forms that made up the sweet little island in the middle of the lake. The challenge was to translate this simple gestural drawing into a large scale woodblock. Intermediate steps of freehand drawing and painting onto the wood before carving set me up. I enjoyed trying out the mix of carving techniques that the large scale allowed. – Stina Hals
