I've been working on a second piece in my Springer series. I'm trying to decide if I should keep the image as is; dark and mysterious, or add more details. Right now, I like the bold black and white silhouette but I'm going to leave the artist's proof hanging in the studio, to live with it for awhile, before making changes I may regret. The image was worked up on drafting Mylar, exposed to a Solarplate and printed on Arches 88 with Akua ink. My goal is to create a series of prints based on Ruby and Oscar (two extremely cute Springer Spaniels) without making overly sentimental prints. So far so good ... I think.

  1. It's a desire of mine to include my beloved animals in my work, but striking a comfortable balance that isn't sentimental is a concern for me too. I like these prints, and I look forward to seeing more of the series.
