Example of painting by DeArmond. Circa: 1957.
This unusual item might be best described as a "mixed media" work. It features a print by DeArmond made from wood pulp, abaca, cedar bark, and other natural fibers. It is presented with an overlay featuring molded paper objects, natural seaweed and shells by Sitka artist Mary Sarvela of Alaska Beach Treasures. Circa 1994-96.
(Left): X - Xanacanthus - from A Prehistoric ABC, and its original woodblock (above). (Above, right): Christmas cards and images designed by DeArmond. The angelic figure is from 1982. All are pencil signed (two with only initials).
Example of toning from extended exposure to bright lights or sunlight. Notice the paper color; around the image is darker than the edges of the paper. In this case, its matting was removed.
This cotton scarf was originally designed by DeArmond as a holiday gift, for sale at the Scanlon Gallery in Sitka, Alaska.
Illustrations completed for an Alaska Magazine article in 1978.

Examples of DeArmond's Certificate of Authenticity for wood engravings.
(Left): Created in 1967, this was to replace an older Pan Am Clipper World map that had hung above the library check-out desk in the Juneau City Museum since 1951. Completed in wood, ink and resin. It is likely the only one of its kind, and differs greatly in style from the breadth of DeArmond's known works. Property of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.
