Lilac Time depicts a rural country lane in Camden, Maine where farmhouses with black shutters and cottages line the narrow street. As the morning sun rises over the horizon, maple trees cast long shadows across a lush expanse of green grass. Adorned with pale pink and violet colored blossoms, the lilac bushes are in full bloom and fill the air with a delightful fragrance. Colorful flowers also grow along the edge of a lovely front porch - a potted geranium sits on the steps and reflections of the colorful lilacs can be seen in the windows. A beloved old blue truck is parked in a driveway of a house in the distance. With its timeless, rustic aesthetic, Lilac Time depicts the bucolic charm and folksy spirit of the New England countryside.

Lilac Time was created by drawing with a needle on a copper plate coated with an acid resistant ground, thus exposing copper.  Using line etching and aquatint techniques, the copper plate is etched with acid. After hand inking and wiping, an etching press is used to emboss the image into a sheet of damp paper. Every print of Lilac Time is individually inked, printed, and when dry, hand painted with watercolor.
