Morris's Nest Etching Editioned

June 09, 2009


It's true, I haven't had much time for Tiny Aviary, but does it count that I think about Tiny Aviary all of the time? I am hoping to get the ball rolling on this again. I am considering opening up Tiny Aviary to cover, in a more general sense, the work that I do. It's been so busy that I haven't had as much time to go in to the museum, and thus less time for bird related material.

Anyway, I have a new etching completed and will be available for sale in the Etsy shop starting tomorrow! I posted about this print a few months ago HERE and HERE. My friend, Teresa James, who is a wonderful Chicago artist and printmaker, was kind enough to share her beautiful print shop (White Wings Press), with me so that I could complete the printing on this etching. It is a small edition of 18, of which I will have roughly 14 to sell. It's a two color (meaning 2 plate) copper plate etching printed on beautiful Hahnemühle german etch, cotton rag paper.

If you find me on Facebook, I have some process photos of its printing uploaded to my profile. Later this summer I will be going back to White Wings Press as a guest artist, and will be working with Teresa to make a five color etching. I am hoping to document the whole process and get it up on Flickr along with other work of mine.

Ok, more soon. Hope everybody is having a great summer!
