Storytime! I like to title my works, usually involving some part of the inspiration or my thought process...
Barndance (listed for sale currently on Etsy) shows a few faint figures, some planes of color, a few building fragments, and a large, rust-red barn. The figures actually weren't my doing; the zinc plate was one abandoned by a former student at the college many years ago, and rather than etch them away I left them as an under layer.
Anyways, back to "Barndance." I started the print with a palette drawn from memories of late summer afternoons. Once I put down the layer of yellow light over the barn, I was reminded of a childhood favorite book, "Barn Dance!" To this day my mother can recite to whole story, but I only remember the first few lines, "Full moon shinin', shinin' big an' bright, Pushin' back the shadows, holdin' back the night."
Above, my print. Below, an illustration from "Barn Dance!"
