Big Hair © wood engraving (ed. 30) image: 4 x 3.5 in. $60.00 (go to "Hi There" for purchase information)
During one of my visits to England I came upon a stone carving of a head with a large hairdo, probably 17th century. I pulled out my sketch book and made a pen and ink sketch of what I saw. I don't remember who it was supposed to represent and I made no notation on the sketch as to where it was. Now, decades later, I was looking for an idea for a wood engraving and decided to "graze" in a sketch book for an idea. The 17th century version of "Big Hair" caught my eye.
