These prints were done from a mixed media original. I gessoed watercolor paper, drew with Conte and colored pencil, a little oil paint, crackled and glazed. The idea here is about taking things apart and putting them together.
There's a relationshp between a branch and an axe but in this pair there is a deliberate intensity about the branch and the axe is a bit taken aback. With paper and scissors, paper seems to be gracefully offering and scissors is taking a second look, perhaps reconsidering the mission. - EM
