Solitude by William H. Hays is a 9-color, 7x5 linoleum block, linocut print from a limited edition of 100.
A small stream with two waterfalls bordered by golden leaves that are gently floating along. In this print William is able to capture the formless flow of a babbling stream, a truly impressive feat in carving.
"Titling my prints is sometimes difficult. Not with this one. It seemed to say it all. In autumn I went up into the mountains near Stowe, Vermont and hiked around several different waterfalls over the course of a couple of days. They are wonderful things and have the same captivating quality that a campfire holds over us in the night. The sound, I can never put into my prints. But the rhythms of the falling water are a lovely challenge in the medium of relief printing." ~ William Hays
