Black & White Intaglio Etching

1/1 second state
Plate Size: 12"x18"
Printed with a warm black ink on Rives BFK with ample borders.

This is a Second State proof. The plate has line and aquatint.  After this proof was taken I decided to do additional aquatint, and maybe even a plate with color...if I remember correctly. This is the only proof I have of the plate in this "second" state.

The inspiration for this piece was the row of mailboxes I saw on a country road near New Ipswich, NH. There were many farms with fields in that area, which in late summer would need mowing...thus the "High Mowing" sign, which I found very charming.
