Klimt study turned linocut

Hi all! It’s been a while. My apologies. October was nuts and November is already kicking my butt. So thanks for bearing with me as I play blog catch-up.
 Anyhows, printed today, here’s a 4”x6” linocut print inspired by one of the quick studies (below) I scribbled this summer at the Getty Center’s recent exhibition of Gustav Klimt drawings, The Magic of Line

While I don’t care much for his painting, I’m fascinated by Klimt's drawing. Since I’ve developed an increasing interest in pushing my carving to mimic loosely hand drawn lines while still utilizing fields of filled and blank space to communicate form, this sketch seemed like a good place to start.
Thanks for scrolling through.
