Mirror Lake  (She sits and waits.) by Belinda "BillyLee" NYE (Printmaker)

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


Hand painted edtion I did today for the “She” competition in Dandenong next month. That is if I get selected!

This image comes from a photograph of me at 15 years of age….sitting at Mirror Lake viewing the beauty of the world for the very first time. It was such a memorable moment for me.

Then it was back to the cowboy who took the photograph!

This is a woodcut, a rather large woodcut. It is hand painted with ink. I enjoy the process of wood cuts, then handpainting. Its an extremely long process but every stage of the development is enjoyable.
