Bird On A Cairn

Just when I thought that my bird series was coming to an end, inspiration has struck. Although as you can see this one is a little bit different. The piece is simpler with less going on yet i think it still has a boldness to it. I think it looks like the cairn is on a beach somewhere.

For this one I kept the paper on the plate while I carefully removed the string masks. This left the detail where before it would have been stark white lines.

I am happy with it and yet another new direction with the printing process.

Oh, I love your bird! He's adorable, and the colors in the rocks are amazing. So is the texture on the moon. <3

I love crows so was immediately drawn to this piece, the colors, design, and shapes are soothing and reflective.

I love this!! I had a Northern raven come visit me the other day-I love reading about bird totems and your print is a beautiful representation.

Wonderful crow, saw a whole flock yesterday, big flock...Love the cairns too. I love stacking rocks and stones. Perhaps there's some instinct there, lovely work. xox
