Slivers of Red, Yellow, & Blue, is a unique, accordion-style book of cyanotypes and watercolor on paper. It is tied with a paper rope from which a small pendant hangs.
The genesis of this little piece began a few years ago as I was preparing to leave Cape Cod. The Cape had been my home for some 30 years, and I wanted to make a series of cyanotypes of plants from our garden, as a way to preserve them in my memory.
This is the only book I made from that series , and it's the only piece to which I added touches of watercolor which imbued the imagery with a surprisingly light and playful quality - one which is not common in my work.
