Ocean Fishing Boat
Ocean is the name of this round-backed (whaleback) trawler. The Mystic Seaport Museum exhibited this print and explained there were only 5 metal round-backed trawlers made. I had difficulty completing the drawing as it was moved around to different locations in the Boston Harbor. The block for the water was given to me by Herb Fisher. I had it for many years before I found the right use for it. I designed the woodcut around that block.
An edition of 50 prints was made on Tableau machine-made rice paper. A special deluxe edition was printed on Susuki, a handmade Japanese paper.
