This image contains my two favorite subject matters, flowers and rattlesnakes! The hollyhocks were growing in our front yard and we came across Picnic one summer evening drive in the Chupadera Hills. I created an earlier version in 2008 but was never satisfied with the outcome. When I saw the potential with backlit paper this was the first image I printed out using backlit paper and it has transformed how I approach my art.
