Media: Copper plate etching & aquatint
This etching harkens back to the great Dutch etchers of the 17th Century when landscape was beginning to be accepted as a legitimate genre of art- a position it had not occupied since antiquity. Not only am I interested in the standard compositional devises of perspective but I enjoy showing the many textures and shapes of the natural environment. This limited print has undergone several transformations- this being the first "state". Winner of the 2013 Delta National Small Print Exhibition, this etching was purchased for the permanent art collection of Arkansas State University.
