After the block is carved, there are usually 4 prints made from that block. One is left black and white and called an artist's proof. The other 3 are mounted on a custom wooden panel (from recycled wood) and handpainted. The piece is then varnished for preservation. All works are originals but are part of a 3 print series.
For Reduction woodblock prints, there are 5-7 prints made in a series. All the colors are from repeated inkings and being run through the press. They are also individually framed as above.
Currently, a collection of Blue's originals can be seen at Island Artisans in Bar Harbor.
The cost of original framed prints generally ranges between $350-$650.
Original prints from Christmas in Maine are also available, framed in beautiful hardwood to match the historic period.
