This little 5″ x 5″ hand-pulled print is a derivative of a watercolor I did when on the road in New Mexico several years back. One of a series painted on location, the image remains a favorite. While recently rummaging through the archives, I fell upon the original color transparency and found myself wondering how it might work as an etching. Using Photoshop, I created a black and white positive which I then burned in to a photo-sensitive plate and…voilá!
Sunflower at midnight is one of 20+ pieces that will be on display at the Hyde Park Free Library beginning May 14th. Located in the S. June Keyes Memorial Annex, A Printmaker’s Perspective spans a decade of work, exploring a variety of techniques and approaches I’ve played with, mastered, or simply enjoyed the most in my career as a visual artist and educator.
