About the Paper. I print on Red River Paper’s Aurora Art Natural 250, an acid-free, 100% cotton paper made in the U.S. This paper has a distinctive elegance and warmth, with a natural white tone and semi-smooth surface. Aurora Art Natural 250 contains no optical brighteners.

About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.

About the artwork. This digital collage, titled Morty and the Moon, was created from a photograph of Morty, the resident screech owl at the Deep Creek Lake State Park Aviary in western Maryland. The photo of the moon was taken at Antietam Natioinal Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland.

Morty is a gray morph eastern screech owl, who came to the aviary after a collision with a car left him blind in one eye and unable to hunt. The eastern screech owl has two primary color morphs: gray and rufous. Gray morphs like Morty dominate in hardwood forests, such as those found in western Maryland. Closing their eyes, they disappear against the gray bark of the maples, oaks, hickories, and other deciduous trees that grow in the region. Listen for the spooky whinnying call of the screech owl in wooded areas during the dark of night.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
