I love the visual language you have used here….nice work Billy !
Bill I just wrote up an artist statement that is going with this artwork to the SHE exhibition in Dandenong…if I send it to you would you read it for me. Billy
BillyLee, this is great! I love the way you use so many different angles in your lines, and how you achieve such a delicate look and feel. Complicated and full-on linear work, but a beautiful tranquil scene.
Hey Whirligig, thanks for commenting, its rare I get a comment on a black and white woodcut, Hardly anyone knows how long it takes to make a woodcut. This one is an A1 size also, so its a big print. Thanks for your kind comments. Billy

How do I make a link available from this page to your journal page. I think its so wonderful what you wrote for me, I might want to use that in an article or artist statement someday quoting you of course. But for now, how do I link what you said to this sight. I tried but I can’t do it. Billy
Whirligig is right. This is a fantastic artwork. Gee, what a fabulous skills you have got. Love the rhythms in your lining, the magical reflections on the water and the wind blowing through her hair. Beautiful, tranquil scene and you did an outstanding job here.
Wow Flyboy, thanks for that, its weird because no-one commented on this woodcut for so long and today I got two comments…and people don’t respond to the black and white so much. So thanks for commenting. B
So beautiful, such awesome work you do, fantastic
Will bubblemail you the info on linking.
I’ve spent so much time in the sierras. This feels pretty similar.
I was sitting on a rock looking over Mirror Lake, the most beautiful serene moment of my life. Then I went and climbed up the easy way on half dome. I too loved it there, great memories! Thanks for commenting…..I will look at your art now. B
Wow!!! This blows me away!! This must have taken forever! And it’s beautiful – a great moment meticulously carved – wow……you must reallly know the meaning of patience….
I think I must have been manic when I did this one because you should see the size of it, large A3 size and I look at it now and go, geez, how long did that take!! He he……doing one now though, have only made one mark on it, better get on with it. Oh how I wish I was manic this week!
due diligence Billy, great application and outstanding result, really clever imagery… thank you!
