PhotoHunter: Framed

Need I say more?

The print at the top of the first photo is one I did in high school. It was the first etching I made. I thought it was from the “Bab Ballads” by W.S. Gilbert but apparently not. I can’t remember, now, where I copied it from.

The other etching which you can see a bit more of in the second photo is one my husband gave me for Christmas the last year we were married. I love it. It is by an Inuit artist, Germaine Arnaktauyok, called “Ullus”. Ullus are traditional Inuit cutting utensils used exclusively by women. One of Germaine’s designs is on the back side of the 1999 $2 coin (toonie) commemorating the founding of Nunavut and another for the 2000 $200 gold coin. You can see more images of her work, here. I would love to get one of the prints of combs.

…and this is a bit of fun I created a few years ago… “June Bride
