I took this photo over by Sutter Buttes in the Sacramento River Valley. It almost looks like a watercolor to me and I am going to try and reproduce it on paper.
Greenwich Observatory has a lovely collection of astrolabes. They are astronomical instruments that were used by navigators to calculate the positions of the sun, the moon and the stars. One in particular, an intricate brass piece, caught my eye. I drew it and created a block print out of the drawing. The print is at the center of these three collages that I made on heavy weight paper, using gold paper strips and acrylic paint
