Once a year, on the anniversary of her cancer remission, my mom hikes around some alpine meadows on Mt. Rainier and looks at the wildflowers. I made a papercut of one of the rocks and wildflowers as a gift for her.

I was inspired by Lynd Ward woodcuts, like this one:


 
where the image is formed more by texture than by shape. There's the cross-hatched sail, the squiggly wave, the solid boat, the heavy striped sky, the jittery person, etc.

I thought I could do something similar, with three textures from the mountain:
  1. lacey leaves and flowers,
  2. big blocky chunks of rock, and
  3. spiny trees.
But... uh ... I'm definitely not Lynd Ward yet. :) I would call this mixed results: I think there's promise in the texture-based approach, but I wouldn't quite call this go at it a success.

 

And the photo I was working from:

I changed the asters to lupines, because lupines rule and asters drool, clearly.
