“Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of the moon.” Rumi

Feeling grateful this evening and moved by the above quote. What a wonderful way to appreciate the gifts of Nature.

I created the original etching and aquatint, “Home” in my first printmaking course at Parsons School of Design as an undergraduate in 2006. I don’t currently have a photo of that version (but will in the near future). When I enrolled as a not for credit student in 2011, I felt inspired to apply some of my decorative papers through the process of chine-collé. I have two variations: “green” and “lavender.” A part of me feels the “lavender” version is too busy. I like seeing the faint winged creatures in the “green” impression. Do you have a preference?
