work continues

I think I finished up a couple of plates, but I'm still mulling them over a bit. I have a handful of unfinished ones that are proving to be a bit of a struggle still. Here are the two I'm thinking might be done, in any case.

We also got down to Skagit Valley to see the daffodil fields, and hope to return to see the tulips some time this weekend. This time I'll bring along my little tripod so the photos are less blurry!

I'm still planning the aquating substitute experiment with pressing sugar into soft ground, but I haven't had a chance to do that yet. I'll post images when I do!

If the 2nd etching were a male study, it would be me counting the days til retirement. I may be reading into it, but I sensed a level of desperation and agnst in that piece. Very provoking.

A couple of great prints. I found the portrait very engaging. Way to capture that penetrating gaze!

I sooooo admire the etching done for the Raise Your Voice Day. I'm T1 since '74. It's been a long journey, but many friends walk the path with me. I'm interested in purchasing a copy of this piece. Is that possible?
