This print was created from my love of Bonsai (also a hobby of mine). This print has a very personal story of a departed friend of mine. The etching print expresses the passion my friend had for bonsai and the struggles of life that is shared by us all. To make an etching print you cover the plate with ink then remove the surface ink leaving the ink in the etched area; i.e. intaglio process. This allows the artist to create detail lines, various textures and a look of age to the resulting print. This print is one of currently ten different trees each with it’s own story to tell. The hope is that the viewer of these prints get the feeling of tree and/or the excitement of Bonsai; a living art.
