    paper- Tableau - roll

    My printmaker homage is to Leonard Baskin , specifically 'The Anatomist', which depicted an all- dark figure with white face and hands with prominent black line.
    On the side was an anatomical chart ,printed in red.
    My block is one of many i found at a yard sale with mahogany veneer on one side and teak on the other-used for ship's models , i believe.
    The title is also an homage- to the short story ,
    'A Pair of Lovers' by Elsie Singmaster Lewars , one of my favorite dog stories.
    The red is printed with an actual sprig of eastern white CEDAR .
