American artist Margaret Jordan Patterson

Not mine

Been exploring ebay:

I have been exploring what is available on ebay in the way of prints. Some good stuff! I found this wood cut inspirational.

This is a really fine original woodblock print by American artist Margaret Jordan Patterson. It is pencil signed,editioned and titled lower border. This original woodblock measures 7 1/2X10 1/2″, it is titled: “Piccola Marina,Capri”, it is proof number 30 out of an edition of 50.

Be interesting to see what it goes for – I am watching.
I am thinking of the Internet context of this project.
