A fabulous mid century modern art inocut print using black printing ink. A single modern design of retro squares. Simple art is the best! This print is in the series of “retro squares “
Each linocut print is printed to order. I have carved into the linoblock by hand. Then I carefully ink the block and print the print. Each one comes out a little different due to the variation that occurs with truly handmade.
*** Medium: Hand carved, hand-pulled linocut print.
*** Size: 8x10 inches signed on the back.
*** Ink: Printers Ink mixed color by hand.
*** Paper: 100% cotton rag paper (treeless) with hand-torn edges.
*** Uniqueness: Each print is pulled by hand one at a time. Variation is part of the beauty.
NiYAMAS original abstract modern painting by Linnea Heide
‘Niyamas’ is a Sanskrit term, meaning a set of behaviors or “self observances.” They are as follows:
1. Sauca: Be pure.
2. Santosa: Practice acceptance.
3. Tapas: Do your work. Volunteer.
4. Svadhyaya: Take time to reflect.
5. Isvara pranidhana: Stay humble.
This beautiful painting serves as a reminder to do your very best every day.
18” x 18” x .875”
acrylic on gallery-stretched canvas w/staples in the back; sides are painted, so there’s no need to frame the artwork.
You’re viewing a limited edition, giclee archival print of my original collage, The Encounter.
This is one of my all time favorite works. My passion for mysterious patterns and mathematical objects and love of intimate glimpses of nature just came together for my in this piece.
I have listed a size of 7 1/2 inches tall by 10 1/2 inches wide. Other sizes are available. You may also prefer a stretched canvas option ready to hang on the wall.
I have alligned myself with a state-of-the-art archival printer. Here are the stats on machinery, inks and paper quality:
Printer: Epson Stylus Pro 9880 (Colorburst Edition) digital printer at a 300 DPI. This printer uses eight ink cartridges allowing for subtle and detailed control of the final outcome.
Inks: Epson Ultrachrome K3 high density pigment inks. Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks have improved print permanence characteristics that provide lightfastness ratings of up to 108 years for color and over 200 years for black and white under rigorous industry accepted display conditions.
Paper: Epson Somerset Velvet Fine Art archival quality paper. This paper is 100% cotton hot press for long term durability. It is acid, lignin and chlorine free and pH buffered to preserve fine art.
Allow two weeks to create reproduction.
The traditional style of Venetian glass is reflected in the laborious process of cane work. This is a two day process, that involves first creating the rods of colored glass that will make up your pattern, and then creating the piece itself. This is a very difficult technique that involves great precision, to maintain the desired pattern. This is a one of a kind magnet, bursting with color! If you are looking for a unique and elegant gift, with a taste of Italy, you will love this Venetian style magnet!
These magnets range approximately between 2” - 3 1/4” in diameter
We use a type of magnet called Super Magnet, to create these pieces, so they have a strong magnet pull.

MODERN TREASURY MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:
Laura from aromacandles in Chicago
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! My name is Laura and I am a part-time massage therapist & aromatherapist. I have always been drawn to the holistic side of medicine and love being able to share what I’ve learned with other people who are drawn to it as well.
Apart from creating things, what do you do?
I love spending time with my husband Mark, my teenage daughter Megan and our 3 dogs. We are very outdoorsy, and spend as much time as possible playing!
Where does your inspiration come from?
I love the smell of grasses, herbs, flowers and fresh air. Mother Nature is and has always been my inspiration. To me, there is nothing more amazing than the way true essential oils smell. The mouthwatering tang of sweet orange, the instant relaxation the scent of lavender brings and the fresh, herbaceous aroma of rosemary…. there’s nothing like it.
Who are your most influential creative idols?
I don’t really have creative idols in my line of work, but I would say that Mother Nature is quite good at what she does!
How do you get out of your creative ruts?
Take a walk, a hike, a bike ride… just being outside for me, clears the cobwebs. I find that when I remove myself and my ego, my subconscious self is capable of amazing things.
Where would you like to be in ten years?
Living somewhere warmer! Chicago can be brutal. Creating and blending my candle line full time is a dream of mine. I hope to add essential oil soaps, lotions and bath products to my line down the road.
Gorgeous mod and vintage finds in greys!
