If you’re ever been to the Great Smoky Mountains, you’re familiar with the wonderful, misty mornings that give these ancient mountains their name. I worked very hard to capture this in this work. I’m very happy with the result.

The Inkscapes are a series of monotype prints, depicting scenes and etherial landscapes as viewed through a cellular matrix or frames. Monotypes are basically single prints made by applying and removing ink on glass and then pressing the paper onto the image. Pressing can be done with a roller (etching) press or by hand. Multiple applications of ink or impressions may be made to achieve multiple colors, tonal or textural qualities, but you only get one. One shot. One print. One single image.    Sort of like life, right?
