One day while my wife and I was walking around Shizuoka we spotted this Shinto Shrine. It was beautiful sitting in amongst the trees. I never forgot that image and so made this etching. The etching reflects the harmony I felt of that idyllic vista.
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 series of prints of the Japan Garden aesthetics with the hope of inspiring those that have seen it as well and encourage other to see in in person.
