Naro Theater Solarplate Etching

Across the street from the antique store in Norfolk where I've been spending some time painting is an old movie theater built in 1936. Very few of these old theaters have survived in the area. It's the place to go to see foreign, art, independent and classical  films. This is a  solarplate etching where I first drew it on glass and then exposed the drawing onto a photosensitive plate for the printing, using my etching press. 
Now when I look at it, I have nice memories of going to the theater!

A World of Butterflies

In Coconut Creek, Florida, there is the world's largest butterfly exhibit. When you see that many butterflies in one place, it is pretty magical. I just realized that there are people in my video. Ouch! I guess I was too mesmerized by the butterflies to see them at the time!
Butterflies are also outside in the gardens.
