Spring Point • 5×7 • etching • $45
My first etching on my press! :-). I actually worked on the copper plate of this image in the fall & chickened out of printing more than a couple of trial runs. Today I got my nerve up & printed a series of 8 of these. They are all printed from the same copper plate on archival paper, but they vary slighty as they are done by hand–the beauty of printmaking! The paper size is approximately 8×12. They will all be signed & numbered (but weren’t ready for that at the time I took the picture). I love Spring Point Light!

Spring at the Head Light • 4×6 • monoprint, oil on paper • $35
I just can’t get enough of the Head Light. 🙂 It doesn’t really matter at what angle you view it from, it”s just a striking Portland landmark. So much beauty at Fort Williams. Soon all of the snow will be gone & the grass will turn from brown to green & kite flyers will litter the fields–I am looking forward to that!
Comes sleeved on archival mat board/signed & numbered 1/1.
Paper size is approx 7×9.
Islands by Night • oil on paper, mono print • 4×6, paper size 7×9 • $35
I was playing with my press & the monoprint process of a starry night scene, which I always love to paint! I love the mystery of it all & not knowing what the press will do to the painting I put down on plexi. 🙂

I’m having fun painting on plexi & printing the image on my press. It’s totally thrilling to me! Here’s a Penobscot Bay Summer sunset & there’s a daytime scene below. 🙂
Summer Day on the Coast • oil on paper, mono print • 4×6, paper approx 7×9 • SOLD
About 10 years ago I took an etching workshop & ever since, I have been obsessed with having a press in my studio. Well, a year and a half ago I purchased one & it has been sitting in my studio just staring at me. I’ve kind of been afraid to use it. NO MORE … I have decided to play with it as much as I can for the month of March & beyond!
Yesterday I did a little still life drawing, placed the drawing under a 4×6 inch piece of plexiglass & then painted the still life on the plexi. From here, I ran the painted plexi through the press onto some thick archival paper. I did this 4 different times, creating 4 one of a kind pieces of the same subject matter. This gave me a chance to see how it all worked. I had a blast getting lost in something completely new. I hope you like them! You can purchase one individually for $35 or purchase them as a set for $115–ship for free. They will come sleeved on archival mat board. Click on image for larger view. Paper size is approx 7×9.
