Description The moment you see is an transaction. Jack has decided to trade is only cow for a sack of beans. Not the most intelligent decision but it works to his favor in the end. He regains his family's worth, stolen before Jack was born by the giant, through this fateful choice. What is presented is a moment of faith and at its core is a vulnerable moment where Jack lays everything on the line with no assurance of success. This work is a color representation for the purpose of informing a woodcut print. Hopefully I will solve the registration issues of previous attempts.
Stephen Gentry, Fort Collins, Colorado Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement My artistic desire is simplicity of form, color, and composition. Life as I know it is so hurried and distracted that I feel I must present an antithesis. Contrasting what is real with what is possible if one shifts focus to the simple things happening quietly all around. Thank you to those who have given and continue to provide feedback, I appreciate your comments. And thank you to those who have purchased my posters.
Currently I am experimenting with woodcut printing and when I have a reasonable/presentable piece I will post it, and if you have some hints or tips I would love to hear them.
