Description

Art Print Etching, February Visit, Doves Dip

One blustery February morning, a flock of doves settled in the maple tree just off my balcony in the Austin hill country. I quickly grabbed my camera and was rewarded with these images showing the birds fly in, settle on the bare branches and then fly away.
I manipulated the images to take them to their bare, calligraphic beauty, and created solar etching plates. Then I designed handmade paper to print on. The background white paper is a mix of cotton and flax pulp with gulf muhly grass seed heads. The middle square is an oriental pulp (gampi) that I cooked and hand beat myself. The blue that you see is in the actual paper--I used two vats (one natural bark and one died blue) to create the gradient in the paper.
I created editions of eight each of the six images at the new WPA (Woman Printmakers of Austin) print studio. This series is my labor of love. I hope you enjoy it.

This view is showing what I call "Dip" in the series. It can be sold as a series of 6 prints, or separately. The eidition size is eight. Four sets will be kept together. Artist's proofs my also be available.

Gorgeous colors, a soft and substantial fabric (drapes beautifully), and as always a totally unique design from 88editions. I'm so happy to have this beautiful creation in my scarf wardrobe. Many thanks!

This piece is so stunning. It arrived early, beautifully and safely packaged. It is even more beautiful in real life than in the photograph. I am in the middle of a color update in my house right now, and have the perfect place picked out for this piece when I am done painting.
