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.
