My win daughter (win, place and show) called recently and asked why my paintings were no longer on my website. Unfortunately, I had moved the site to a new web host and decided a new design was in order, but I never got around to adding all the galleries.

I now have most of my favorite paintings back on my website. You can find them on the Painting Gallery page. Cheers.

Last week I created a etch of President John F. Kennedy. I used the president’s portrait for my design. After marking the hard ground with a needle, I etched the copper plate in acid for about 45 minutes. This gave me a rather deep line drawing.

I inked the copper plate on a hot pad and then removed most of the ink. I used my fingers and Q-tips to tone the plate. Because I have specially toned the plate, this is not a mono type.

Visit my Printmaking – Etching and Mono Types page to see a etch of the same print. And don’t miss my latest linoleum block print, Kennedy, Tippit, Owsald, Ruby on my Printmaking – Linoleum Block Prints page.
