titled "soon" - impasto blues and silver oil paint


this one's about coming back after a long journey and looking for something i've lost and i had no idea where to find it .... until today ...

the silver oil paint has given this one a beautiful metallic colour throughout ... i like it .... am i drowning in this impasto sea? no, i was long rescued since the last sea picture and ended up on a beautiful island surrounded with my boys and beautiful friends ... this one's about the journey still ... something is happening ... today ...

three of my etchings titled "happening", "the climb" and "eventually"


Printing on copper was quite a challenge ... as you gathered i don't enjoy the carving out, engraving process and etching - it's way to hard on my wrists and i need to learn to take breaks ... but i do love the final result with etchings ... there are days when i dread the printmaking subject - other days i love it ...














this one's called "the climb" - also a copper etching
















this is an etching on copper completed in class today titled "eventually"





hey
