These three monoprints were inspired by the woodcuts of Edna Boies Hopkins. However, they are not woodcuts but rather are watercolor monotype prints made with watercolor painted onto a frosted plexiglass plate. Each of these was made with two plates--the background color and texture--and the images on a separate plate. Each was run through the press one but one was pressed on top of the other. The titles are: "Red Clematis," "Hosta," and "Grapes."
