It was the Lloyd Foltz print exhibit at the American Legacy Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri that took me in to THE DARK. While at the opening I had author Barbara Thompson sign my copy of the above pictured book. You can order the book HERE. It was the use of darkness in Foltz's block prints that later helped me envision Glade 1. Double click on next closeups.
I was halfway through my first linocut reduction,
when the idea of light cascading from the sky took hold.
