This image consists of several art endeavors of mine over the years that finally came together. The artist's made paper includes pressed china berry blossoms, coconut husk shavings (which die the pulp a warm pink) and orange tissue paper found between sheets of copper leaf. The pattern on each side was created in Photoshop from a scan of a skeleton leaf found in my garden. The photo of branches is a solar etching from my winter walk series taken in the Austin Hill country.
