Stenciled Handmade Paper Painting
11" x 14" image, 16" x 19" mat
My love of turtles began with childhood explorations in the woods, ponds, and streams around my Ohio home. David Carroll's writings about and drawings of turtles inspired this unique turtle paper painting.

I sprayed pigmented cotton pulp through multiple stencils and multiple layers onto a base sheet of kozo paper to make this painting.

The finished piece is mounted in a white cotton rag mat of archival quality.
