Description

Hens, are the most underestimated of animals in the farm yard, they are clever, quite calculating and very able to decide what YOU are going to do!

a handprinted aquatint etching; this means that I have drawn the image, through a varnish, onto a copper plate, I then immerse the copper plate in acid, and the acid "bites" into the copper where I have removed the varnish. When the plate is done, and this takes a while, as most copper plates go in the acid several times, with me adding more detail and aquatint (gives dark tones) I ink the copper plate up for each print I make, you can only print once per inking. As etchings are real hands on printmaking, printmaker are allowed to call their prints original prints, and etchings are very collectible. A great way to start an art collection!

Aquatint is a technique where deep tones can be achieved on an etching, it involves rosin, that gets melted onto the copperplate with the help of a burner.
Find my printmaking movies on Youtube, just search under my name.

My little hen is printed in an edition of only 50 prints,
please be aware that I can't guarantee that you get the number on the photo......
Each print is numbered, titled and signed by me.

the etching is printed on a piece of warm white heavy printmaking paper, perfect for the image,
the paper measures 8" x 10" (20 cm x 25 cm - A4) and fits in a standard frame
and the actual image measures 6" x 5" (12cm x 16 cm)

I'll mail your etching in a padded envelope, the print is placed on a piece of backing, wrapped in cellophane and comes with a nice "Original Print by Mariann Johansen-Ellis" sticker and a leaflet explaining what an etching is. If you are giving the etching away as a gift, let me know and I'll wrap it in a nice piece of paper for you!

Thank you for looking in my shop and very welcome back!

I love this hen. It's a really beautifully made print. I framed it like a treasured family portrait and it cracks me up because she (the hen) looks like quite the regal matriarch

I love the print! It came when she said it was going to, and it is in perfect condition! Mariann gave me tips on how it should be framed and am looking forward to picking out a frame to show the print off.
I am very, very happy with my purchase.

I have been eyeing this piece for awhile. It is so whimsical and I just love it! It evokes so much thoughtful and creative imagery in my mind. As always, Mariann’s craftsmanship blows me away. I’m pretty sure I could open a small gallery of her work in Atlanta haha!! I just love it so much. Thank you!!!

I bought this print for my friend who has very little art and has a huge appreciation for Mariann’s work. So I surprised her for her birthday and she loved it!!!!! It’s so pretty. In person you can really see the beautiful details of the dawn light that is captured in this etching. I can’t wait to see it at her house!!
