When she held her child... landscape version 8x10

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


When she held her child she could walk through the forest, eyes high above the tree-tops.

by paper artist Elly Mackay

8x10 photographic print
Printed on lovely archival matte paper with archival pigment inks.
Lovingly packaged. Protected in a cello with a backer board.

I create my images with yupo paper and inks, and photograph them set in a miniature theater.
