I use whatever metals I can find, and I consider myself both an artist and eco-friendly recycler.
As I was looking at the ferns growing in my garden I remembered the book Where The Red Ferns Grow. I thought about printing a few of the fern branches in red paint. Liking the result I added a few touches of gold leaf.
“Recently I have become interested in printing in my art work. So I have been looking around for things I could print. In this painting I used a fern to print. I painted white on one side of the fern then applied that side to the canvas. Once the White on the canvas was apparent I removed the fern.”
