I thought this was too cool not to share. The above print comes from Tugboat Printshop and is the work of Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth. I love the rich colors and the attention to detail. Did you notice the mountains are reflected in the river?

However, even more impressive is the way the piece was created. The artists carved the scene on plywood and then used the woodblocks to create the print. You can read about the complete process here.


  1. That is so awesome and beautiful! Thank you for sharing it! I watched a special on old Japanese print making - it was similar to this!

  2. Wait and there's more lol - thank you so much for the chair in the room painting! It's wonderful! I like it very much :)
