I have no idea what the answer is to that question. If you have any idea, please let me know. The thing is, that when it comes to these multi-block prints, you can always add another block or keep editing. The hard part is saying to yourself, "This is enough, it is what I want, I like this." At least that's the hard part for me.
This image? It's Tree No. 21 in progress and that's about 2/3 of the proofs I made to get to the final print. Even when I thought I was done, I added another quick block because of one spot that bothered me. Quick as in it took a week to carve and meant editing the other 4 blocks.
I'm stuck in the middle of another one of these now. Tree No. 25. Four weeks and I'm still editing and proofing and thinking I need another block. As well as thinking that I need to finish this so I can get on with my life!!! These things take over so easily!
It's just not to the point yet, that when I look at it, it feels like it does when I am standing on my back porch looking at the glorious shag bark hickory tree a few feet away. Just a little more work on it...
