Block: All shina plywood.
Paper: Japanese paper - 6-3/4" w X 4-3/4" h
Ink: water-based printmaking ink and methyl cellulose as binder.
Comments: This is a tribute of inspiration to woodblock printmaker Utagawa Kuniyoshi's print titled
"Swimming Upstream, with Hagi Branch". The design is also from a dead-end road near my home
that is very peaceful with a quaint bridge suspended above a peaceful stream.
