Artist's comment: A computer artwork I started In 1990 as part of the Perfect Studios trilogy (and later used in the design of the first edition of the first in the series titled The Art of Selling Art) depicts three trees intertwined from their tree sprout-hood. The image became a stamp and was then chine-colle'd on to etching paper. I spattered yellow green casein paint, and finished with a hand stamp from my hand engraved gold signet ring with the MacRitchie clan, a sub-clan of the Macintosh.
