Challenge # 2 - Spring Fever

Challenge # 2 came early in April when we were all more than ready for spring.  Specs were to create a print on the theme Spring Fever (thoughts of the virus lingering on), using two or three colors and 5 x 7 block(s).

A reduction linocut. First the light green was printed over the whole image, then areas to stay were carved away, and the same block was used to print the darker green.
