William Hays | Abundant Earth
Order soon! Abundant Earth by William H. Hays is a 7-color, 12x9 linoleum block, linocut print from a limited edition of 43.
A lush forest of green leaves is kissed by the sun, reflecting its golden glow. The shadows & depth of this image give it a very realistic look. Each individual leaf has an extreme level of detail which contributes to the lush and dense look of the forest.
“The words, Abundant Earth came to me when I saw the final colors applied to this composition. When the first settlers came to New England they cleared the land and found a thick layer of rich, dark soil for planting. Farms sprouted up everywhere and eventually, more than 80% of the land was cleared of the forests. Over the centuries, most of the farms were abandoned and the land was left to rest and recover on its own. Today, more than 80% of Vermont is covered with a carpet of verdant life and beauty.” ~ William Hays
