FRIENDS OF WIND AND WATER
mixed media block prints by Francy Blumhagen

June 2- July 2

Salmon Dance    18" x 38"    $850

Francy Blumhagen works in a variety of media, including block printing, woodcut, collage, and wax resist. In her current show she has focused her attention on block prints depicting the great variety of birds and aquatic life that surround her Whidbey Island studio.

Fish Dance   26" x 28"   $900

Flock of Crows   16" x 16" SOLD

Bonaparte's Gulls   18" x 30"   $585

Blumhagen explains: “The inspiration for my work comes from the sights and sounds that surround me everyday, the birds and fish of the area, as well as by the colors that are revealed in fields, in water and sky; in the plant-life such as salal, moss, lichen, fir needles, salmonberry, and by grasses of every description forever revealing the new greens of growth."

Eagle & Crow   30" x 24"  $700

Blue Heron   28" x 26"   SOLD

Her mixed-media includes many kinds of pencils, crayons, acrylic paint, metallic powders, ink, and some wax. The collage is done with paper she has painted on or marked in a variety of ways, and then cut to fit the imagery. They reflect ideas about what she sees — not literal, but nor are they completely abstract.

Great Horned Owl  
18" x 12"   $285
