Twilight Solarplate Etching

I thought that an apartment building in the evening would be just the thing to do to add a little color to a solarplate etching. This is the next in my building series. It's a building in the city where my studio is located.  I struggled with the plate exposure at the beginning as it came out overexposed at the top and bottom but once I ordered a new plate and exposed it again, the problem was solved. Another mysterious problem in the world of the printmaker!

The Old and The New

Well, it's out with the old and in with the new! A few months ago my group of five artists learned that we had to move from our present location. The building was purchased and will soon become condominiums. We worked really hard searching for a new place and found one only a few blocks away. I like that we are still close to the museum and the neighborhood is really nice with trees about. After much work on a lease, we were able to move last week. Yay! Even though travel and exhibits have been limited lately, it's been a busy time! But feeling so fortunate.☺️
