New prints

These are some new monotypes inspired by Bethlehem Steel. I'm really getting into these industrial landscapes which are partially based on the steel mill, but also morphing into new imagery. 

Untitled VI (Bethlehem)
monotype, 7 3/4 x 5 3/4 in

In the two prints below, I printed the first one from a copper plate matrix and then went back into the ghost image left on the plate to rework and draw back into it before printing again. It's a process I love to use because each consecutive image comes out of the one before it, and there's a whole progression and layering that happens. I also need a certain degree of unpredictability, which is one reason why I love printmaking so much.
