Dragon Ladies

Deep Apple Red Ink
on Beige Archival Paper
2004 - Limited Edition #1 of 10

Three wild gorgeous Dragon Ladies lounge leisurely on a tangled web of their own tails.
Dragon Ladies have wings, horns, and stripes, and are arranged symmetrically in the round.

Deep apple red ink creates a striking contrast on a background of matte beige.

This print is part of my *Fabulous Wallflowers* print series,
where plants, animals, and human forms merge
to form a world of fanciful transformative beings.
Inspired by decorative arts, folklore, archetype, and nature,
Fabulous Wallflowers hide in decorative patterns,
gracefully gazing out from the woodwork
to remind us of the unity, harmony, and balance of living things.

Limited-edition relief print, hand-carved from an original drawing, printed on archival paper in a numbered edition #1 of 10. It is signed, dated and numbered with archival pencil in the lower corners.

Print area is 12in x 12in / 31cm x 31cm
Glossy black enamel frame

About the Print Process:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Linocut Relief Printing is a process comparable to making a giant rubber stamp, but upside-down! I print the images by hand, mixing the ink individually for each print to create variations in ink color, thickness and texture (wabisabi). I love this process because I can produce as many prints as I want, and yet each print has a unique look: the most irregular prints are often favored by collectors.
