MARGARET MERRITT:  Printmaker and Papermaker
"Summer!"
2010
Monoprint
15" x 22"
Butterflies flitting from coneflower to Queen Anne's Lace--all featured in this monoprint--strike me as the essence of a warm August afternoon.

This print, one of a series, was made from first printing images of the flower and its foliage directly from the inked plant material. A solar plate etching was then used to add the butterfly/coneflower image over this background.
