A sweet Green Tara in the landscape of the Big island Hawaii, attended by a pueo, Hawaiian owl.

Moku Hanga is a labor-intensive traditional Japanese woodblock technique. The woodblocks are hand carved, and hand rubbed using a barren onto fine mulberry paper.
Traditionally separate blocks are carved for each color. I have been experimenting with individually watercolor painting each hand rubbed print. As a result, colors vary with each woodblock print.
