Environ 51 *ORIGINAL*
from Mirror 1753
Larch Mountain, Oregon
5x5 work area on 11x8.5 paper
This is the original work of Environ 51, which was created by hand-inking a grayscale print of Mirror 1753. The image for the source photo was on a walk with the dogs on Lower Larch Mountain Road. The original Mirror is converted to a grayscale print, which I then hand-ink with archival inks in a very attractive magnifying headpiece. The tricky bit is remembering to jump over to the other side every time I complete a section of color to make sure I get it matched. I usually remember.
You can confirm the Original status of this piece by the coffee ring evident in the print/mat aspect in the alternate views. The artist was focused on what she was doing rather than place in the world, apparently.
