After making the line etching seen below with the help of Master Printmaker Cindi Ettinger, I enlisted Silicon Gallery, also in Philadelphia, to work with me on a digital print. I would eventually combine this with the etching. In this piece I scanned one of my own drawings of a woodsy riverbank. Once the tones, colors, and scale suited, I added some text along the side. It is a 1698 quote from William Penn expressing the importance of balancing frugality and liberality. Not a sexy message, but a good one.
We made an edition.
Then with Cindi I made another state of the line etching, this time in a dark brown ink on beautiful translucent Gampi paper. She trimmed each and mounted them delicately onto the digital prints. Hence the mix of line etching and digital print here and in four others in the series.
