Some Things Great and Small #1   (2012)     17" x 17"  Mixed Media : monotype, ink on paper 

I started Some Things Great and Small #1 at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle during New Works, a four-day retreat for Haystack faculty, in September 2012.  The retreat provides artists with time to explore ideas and generate new ways of working.  I had begun drawing into and away from my prints while I was at Great Spruce Head Island, an island close to Deer Isle, for a one week artists' residency in June.  At Haystack I made a commitment to drawing on a larger scale and  adding more images and detail to the composition.
