Butterflies and Leaves #1 of 8

Canadian Dollars

My artwork “Butterflies and Leaves” reflects the cycles of life we experience, including a gradual drop in the heat of summer days, when leaves start to turn and butterflies seek a safe haven for their next generation. Butterflies represent endurance, change, hope, and life. Leaves are symbolic of fertility and growth. This varied edition original pen and ink over hand-pulled woodblock print is a unique image. It was created from woodblock plates with leaves carved into them hand-printed in varying patterns using Japanese watercolors mixed on the plate with rice paste. The resulting monoprint was then drawn over with pen and ink embellishments.
