Forever and Ever

I've begun to experiment with textured surfaces and I really like the effects. Technically I have been working with textured surfaces in creating collagraphs, but my goal with printmaking was to print an image off that surface. The surface was not built up too high for fear of ripping the paper and blankets. You could also damage the rollers on a press.

This piece is titled "Forever and Ever."

I cut sheets of metal to create the leaves and then hammered the design in.

Very lovely! I really like it when they have a background!
