Limited Edition Watercolor and Intaglio Etching

May Morning depicts an idyllic scene of a white clapboard farmhouse with an attached ell and barn, like the ones found all over rural New England. A long, winding dirt road entices the viewer to enter the open gate of a spit rail fence, past blue-violet flowers blossoming at the foot of a large beech tree, and to a verdant pasture beyond. Cherry trees bloom, forsythia bushes burst with bright yellow flowers, and small green buds on the beech trees unfold. All these signs herald the long awaited arrival of spring.

May Morning 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 May Morning is individually inked, printed, and when dry, hand painted with watercolor.
