As I get older I have become very aware of how time passes, and how that looks. My children are adults, doing all the things required, I look different, everybody around me looks different.
In this picture, I had a very large green leaf hanging in my studio for some time, time passed. The leaf dried and looked different. When the model arrived I was moved by the scene of the pair.
This hand-pulled polymer photogravure print is made withGamblin bone black and sepia inks, on Rives BFK paper. I decided on a chine collé with Awagami Kitakata. and an edition of 9 numbered prints and 3 A/P prints.
