The South African connection is growing, and I'm very happy about this. I saw this beautiful lino print on Chery'l blog a couple of weeks ago, and one comment was enough to bring it to my mailbox. Lucky me! This is one of my favorite colors, and I really like the way the denser parts of the ink melt into the brighter areas. You can't really see it on the picture but the thick paper has a nice texture too (I just realized the photo is a bit out of focus, sorry about that).
Lesley's note was written on the back of what is probably another lino print, red overlaid with gold, looking quite oriental to me (or is it South African?). This is exquisitely beautiful, thank you Lesley!
