I am still playing with leaf prints and colour and paper. This print in white ink on black reminds me of ghostly images - the souls of plants captured fleetingly before they disappear back into the earth. Something as simple as colour can change an image so much.
I have three grape vines in the greenhouse that produce wonderful grapes every year. Grapes would never grow outside in Newfoundland. The season is too short and too cool, but in the greenhouse they thrive. White Interlaken grapes and a Pinot Noir vine have taken over and need cutting back every year or they'd fill the space easily. The grape leaves and vines are multipurpose aside from the fruit they produce. The leaves are used to create dolmades and now printing. The vine cuttings I use to create charcoal sticks.
My garden gives me so much and asks so little in return.
