THETAWAVES :: Painting Daily
I have also done a number of intaglio etchings. This etching of a seahorse was done in the early 1970's at art school. Drawn on a metal plate with a compass needle, it was then put through a press to created a print. (Rembrandt also did etchings, in addition to his marvelous paintings.) I refer to my seahorse drawings and etchings as my "Hippocampus" work; the hippocampus was so-named because it resembled a seahorse to the doctors who first dissected it. A lovely woman neuroscientist bought one of these from me once.
