Luck Bamboo #2

"Setbacks have an upside: They fuel new dreams." ~ Dara Torres

So when life gives you lemons...

This print began with trouble, I let the ink sit on the plate a little too long and got a really light print. I then reapplied ink and tried again. I ended up with a mess.

I then reworked the print. Drawing the pot and strengthening some of the leaves with ink. The end result is this. I really like the "order from chaos" feel of this. The random shapes of the print come together to form the simple bamboo.
