Art: Arizona by Artist Muriel Areno

I made this linoleum cut when I first moved to the desert. The original proofs from it have been lost, but I made several more on an etching press when I was in college a few years later.

The process embosses the white parts of the image. I chose red ink to convey the heat of the desert sun. The cacti are saguaro, which are native to Arizona.

The impression varies with each proof. Each is signed in pencil and marked A/P, as I never made a complete edition. I may make one in the future, but for now just a few prints are in existence.
