Engraving/Original Watercolor/Chine Colle
Thai Unryu Handmade Paper/100% Cotton Natural Paper
"Fields of Gold," Sigh. That sense of contentment, when you can feel and see the breeze blowing through the wheat.
“Fields of Gold,” honors the bravery of the Ukrainian people during this fraught period of war in their homeland. Blue symbolizes the crystal clear sky, yellow symbolizes the fields of wheat that make up the Ukrainian landscape, and the butterflies represent the eventual metamorphosis we hope emerges for the Ukrainian people after this challenging time.
Framed: 9” x 21”
Chine-Collé is an elaborate time-honored technique in which the engraved image is transferred to a delicate surface by bonding it to a heavier support during the printmaking process. This allows Karla to hand-pull fine details from her plates using beautiful Thai Unryu paper, a translucent natural surface, where kozo fibers (mulberry bush) beautifully embedded in the paper are clearly visible.
Once the Chine-collé printmaking process is completed, Karla then uses watercolor to paint each piece in the edition, turning each Classics Collection work of art into a one-of-a-kind treasured heirloom.

Short personalized inscriptions are also available. They are placed to the left of the signature in pencil.
Short and sweet works best. ie: "To K, Love M 8-18"
