I printed this image using a historic printing processes called cyanotype. It is similar to many of the historic processes I use. It requires me to paint my chemistry on to the watercolor paper and then contact print it in the sunlight. I love this process because of the color; it is a rich, beautiful blue. The digital reproduction I made of my final piece didn't capture the color quite correctly, but it is close enough.
After I had printed with cyanotype, I then added, using glue, broken pieces of glass on top of my printed cyanotype.
The piece is about the continual cycle and quest for healing.
