This is a companion piece to Plate 37 and part of the longer format I am exploring. Half the pieces are nature-inspired while the other half, are more - hmm - scientific is the best word I can think of at the moment. The hand is writing on a vintage Cincinnati public school report card found at a flea market. (Note to family: destroy my reports cards if you're not going to keep them!) Other elements are antique marbled endpaper, antique engineering engravings, title page of an antique French book, lining of a book spine and antique map. 4.5" x 11.5" on canvas.
