Harvest mice is a lino-cut print on paper created by Linda Barnett.
The tiny harvest mouse is one my favourite mammals. It is the smallest rodent in Britain weighing just 6 grams which is about the same as a twenty pence coin. It can be found in long tussocky grassland, hedgerows, reedbeds, around woodland edges and on farmland and is mainly vegetarian, eating seeds and fruits. Harvest mice build a spherical shaped nest of tightly woven grass, high-up in the tall grasses, in which the female will give birth to around six young two or three times a year. This lino print is inspired by a drawing I did for my Mum when I was 10 years old which hangs on her kitchen wall. The current print is my interpretation now that I am many years older.
This is not a print made digitally and printed by machine; this 3 colour lino print has all been hand-made - drawn, lino carved and printed by hand. This means there are slight variations making every print unique. I have prepared the print in two different colour variations in a limited edition of 16 prints. It is printed in colour fast inks on acid-free cartridge paper made with Cupcycling technology.
The prints are signed and numbered on the front and supplied in a neutral mount which can be put into a 8'' x 6'' frame. The print itself is 3.5'' x 5''.
Limited edition of only 16 prints signed by the artist.
Price includes 2nd class UK p&p.
