I drew this in 1987, almost 30 years ago. This is one of my favorite pieces of work. This is my mother when she was 17.

This is a print that I pulled from a woodblock carving that my dad made in 1950. He was an art instructor at the Veterans Hospital in Lexington, KY. He did this as part of an instruction class in woodblock carving. This is the first print pulled off of this block in over 65 years. The image is of downtown Lexington, KY in 1950. He made very few prints of this, but he did manage to get one of the prints in the Lexington Herald-Leader during that same year.
