The red eft, the terrestrial stage of the red-spotted newt
, is a common sight in the New Hampshire forests and on the surrounding unpaved roads. I love seeing these colorful salamanders.
This print, part of a series, reflects what I imagine that the newts might think of me. I printed solar plate etchings on patterned kozo
paper that I made specially for this series.
This diptych is one of two similar ones with each individual images also available as separate prints on slightly different background papers.
