I Have Lived A Thousand Storms

(3 customer reviews)



This unframed, original print is one of an edition of 135, each one printed by me, by hand, using lightfast Cranfield printmaking inks. It’s on almost a full sheet of 250gsm Somerset Satin paper, made at St Cuthbert’s Mill, Wells.

Approximate dimensions: Image, 60cm x 40cm; On paper 70cm x 51cm.

I pass this beautifully spreading, mature oak tree often. It’s unusually wide and has reached the point in its life where its bottom limbs are almost touching the ground. I love its shape. It’s clearly hundreds of years old.

I called the print I’ve Lived a Thousand Storms because I see the tree as a survivor. In winter storms howl up or down the valley, but none have felled it yet.

    Absolutely stunning.
    Was meant to be gifting this beautiful linocut tree but don’t think I can part with it!

    This is a stunning piece of art, very detailed lino print of the first order and highest quality. I bought a print for a Christmas gift, but have to keep getting it out to have a sneaky look at it. Just beautiful.
