A Prayer for the World

"A Prayer for the World" is an aluminum etching I am editioning right now. This is a non-toxic printmaking medium, no acids or solvents are used in the process. I painted on the plate and left the background bare when I put the plate in the etching solution. Like magic the plate naturally gets aquatinted. The plate has so much ink held in the background I pull a shadow print each time I ink up.

Merry Merry Christmas everyone!
