"The Blood & Sap Beneath Me"by Blaine Fontana
ABOUT THE ART
This is my second time around the block living here in Portland,OR. It was spread apart by decade. Like before, its a breathtaking city seeing all the trees, and sharing the love and respect for wood many individuals have here. Oregon is one of the biggest timber industries in the country and one of Portlands monikers is "stumptown". My love for wood and the historical nickname that was established a century ago is what inspired this print. In the early 1900's you could only see stumps for miles around the burgeoning city after it had been established.
