I love driving through the birch forests at the edges of the mountains of the Northwest. They also make me think of Russia and I wonder if maybe Baba Yaga's hut is somewhere just out of frame, waiting on its chicken legs. In this version of the print, I use my absolute favorite thin sheer marbled momi paper as part of a chine collé technique that allows me to use the press to both collage and print atop the collage at the same time. I call this "wizard paper" because it's just magic. It feels like a silk chiffon scarf but is really tough and colorfast and layers gorgeously to produce an effect that looks like watercolor.  This print is a unique, one-of-a-kind image that was an experiment to see how it would work. The image size is 9" x 12" (23 cm x 30 cm) on acid-free BFK Rives cotton rag paper that is 11" x 15" (28 cm x 38 cm).
