Another spring with flowers, leaves and beaches! It is about 70 degrees and sunny today, a record breaking spring day! I don't do many flower images but here are two clay relief etchings, "Tulip" and "Iris", to herald the new season. (I am creativly challenged when it comes to naming my work.) These are printed a la poupee, the plates are colored with ink prior to printing. This technique is a bit more challenging that coloring after printing when you can "color in the lines".


  1. Yes tricky, but these came out great.

  2. Thanks Rich. These plates bled a bit before I got the pressure/ink consistency correct, but it was worth it in the end.
