The longer you look at this piece, the more colors, details and shifting light and shadows you'll see. It was made with numerous techniques and layers of paint. I love how the drawing, glazing, and various applications of paint and plants all came together in the end with echoes of each layer showing through.
Mostly NW Native plants were used in the printmaking portion of this piece. The curving branches are from a dense thicket of snowberry. Notice how, on the same stem, some leaves have jagged edges and others are smooth. The largest leaves on the upright stem to the right are from a red twig dogwood not yet discovered by the many deer who nibble through our yard.
