Description

“I made the plates in 2005-2006 from Fraser (Mountain) Magnolias growing in Montreat, NC.  This etching is part of a group of etchings that when hung together create one image of a Magnolia Branch in Spring with numerous leaf and flower buds.  I am in the process of printing an edition of 95 signed, numbered, and hand-pulled prints and no more than 15 proofs.”

Title remains with the artist.

Most of my days include hikes in the forested mountains I call home. I am intrigued by the constant changes I see on the same hikes: plants emerge, bloom and die; they glow in sunset, fade in mist, bend in wind and rain. I bring the metal plates that I etch and engrave into the woods with me so I can create the art on location. i make multiple plates for full color and hand=wipe and hand print each one.
