Fall has arrived--It's time for new prints!

The cool days and nights have finally arrived.  I can cook batches of prints again.  The prints for this posting were cooked in a small pressure cooker inside, but will probably be the last ones so cooked until next Summer.  It is cool enough and I have enough firewood that I can start printing outdoors again.  I will also have a large stock of fallen leaves to work with and interesting fall flowering weeds.  It is always fun to see what the outcome will be by mixing one type of leaf with another in the same print.  Then to change the metals used to mordant, but keep the same leaf combinations.  I am including a few of the prints that came out of the mornings batch.  I have photographed pairs of prints that were facing each other in the stack and you can see it is not always a mirror image.  I have also shown single enlarged prints of my favorites.  Enjoy!
