Grounded in the wonders of nature. and touched by the voluptuousness of spring in the tropics, this suite of three intaglio prints celebrates Planet Earth. I dreamt of seeing earth with its shining waters and continents gracefully orbiting through the universe. Begun in Spring 2000 as watercolors, these became transformed into calligraphic icons on the etching plates. Alpha, Beta, and Gamma – each is imbued with the feeling of etemal life on earth.

ALPHA Image plate: black, aquantint, chine colle: orient blue

BETA Image plate: indian yellow, aquatint, chine colle: geranium/silver

GAMMA Image plate: black, aquatint. chine colle: turquoise/gold

The three prints were printed in Winter 2001/ Spring 2002 at The Ink Shop Printmaking Center and published by the Olive Branch Press. Available for sale.
