This 8 by 8 inch piece includes collage (using Japanese "Nori" glue), a handpulled block print (the bird), and watercolor. Canvas works well as a backing--no bubbles or warps. : ) I love the physical work of pasting the pieces together--Nori glue is *so* friendly!
A beautiful quote from The Nectar Glory of Sri Vrndavana: "I meditate on limitlessly beautiful Vrndavana forest, filled with limitless trees and vines, limitless deers and birds, limitless splendid groves, limitless charming lakes and streams, limitless jewel mountains, and the divine couple's limitless nectar pastimes." Have a great week!

An 9 by 12 inch linocut printed on beautiful Lokta paper, used for centuries in Nepal. Many great epics were recorded on this strong, yet delicate paper. May the traditions of the devotional ancients bless my humble printmaking attempts. Thanks for stopping by!
