"Secrets of a Cactus Wren"

This is the final print for the Women of the West portfolio organized by Lisette Chavez and Nyla Hurley.  I decided not to do a lot of color.  Just the black key and a tint base flat.
This is my artist's statement for the edition

“Secrets of a Cactus Wren”

I brought my hopes and dreams to the desert. Today, I rest my soul in a nest of visual
metaphors from the past to the present. The cactus wren mentors me with her innate tenacity to thrive in any environment.
