Description

aquatint and soft-ground etching on Hahnemuhle German Etching paper, image size: 9″ x 8″, paper size: 15 3/4″ x 14 1/4″

Artist’s Statement
Liquid pools of cool greens are cradled by walls of earthen reds. Each, a unique shape of quiet, barely seems to flow with gravity’s demands. Undulating walls of rough striations play with the dancing patterns of each pool’s smooth-pebbled bottom. Sunlight’s sparkle reaches down and dances in the shadows of moss-covered stonewalls. Eternity brings water to carve into its earth a sanctuary.

Watkins Glen is a portfolio of three images. Each is intaglio-printed from two copper plates, one plate for each color. Each plate is etched using traditional aquatint and soft-ground techniques. This portfolio is printed in an edition of twenty on Hahnemuhle German Etching paper.
