Dive Bomber #1 (Collagraph of Northern Mockingbird)

When I was in high school a Northern Mockingbird would dive bomb me while I was mowing the grass.  He or she would come so close to my head I thought I needed to do something to protect myself.  My solution was to wear a large sombrero.  I'm sure anyone passing by found me to be rather entertaining.

The image size of this piece is 7" x 9.25"
Paper Size is 11" x 9"
Printed on Arches Cover White Paper
Varied Edition

Wild Turkey Hen #2 (Hand Colored Collagraph of Textured Bird)

I thought I would show you what a mess I can make while in the process of creating my collagraphs. Pieces of textured paper, etc. just about everywhere (including the floor).
This collagraph practically made me blind with all the tiny pieces. I am currently working on a version with a colored background. I am trying to come up with a more luminous backdrop which is not proving to be easy.

The image size of this original hand-pulled, textured collograph measures 18" x 14.5".
Paper Size: 21" x 16.5"
Varied Edition
Printed on Arches cover white paper
