Time Lapse - Cladonia cristatella

All of my lichen landscapes are full of intricate detail, with the larger and more complicated pieces taking me around 100 hours. My work is best appreciated close up (like lichens themselves!) but since it is hard to do that on a computer screen, I thought people might be interested in watching my process. So here is a time-lapse video of one of my most recent works (sped up really fast!). Enjoy!

This print, Lichen Landscape #12, is available for purchase here

The inspiration for this piece comes from a photo in the Lichens of North America book. For more information about this awesome book full of wonderful lichen photos you can go to  http://www.lichen.com. The images are from Sylvia and Stephen Sharnoff, including this one!
