Reaching for the Sun


Reaching for the Sun, a dark field monotype, is an experimental piece in which I tried out some new (at least to me) inks and inking techniques as well as exploring a non standard format – a long, narrow, vertically composed image. I like the result, and plan to do some more, even if it means I’ll have to work on building long, narrow frames. 15″ x 2″, matted and framed to 21 1/2″ x 8″.
