This little print emerged yesterday following a walk on Sunday in some woods near Stranraer, where there seemed to be wrens everywhere.  It is a linocut and it has a couple of interesting features. One is that the branch bleeds off the paper, and the other is that the ink is wiped off the breast of the bird with a bit of lint free cloth just before printing to create the tonal variation.  The title is a reference to the amazing strength of the wren’s song: it’s a real belter of a tune for such a tiny bird.
