After a Brisk Retreat

Long has this blog lain fallow. Languishing in the time I've spent on things less deserving, this site has twiddled it's thumbs and passed the time as any lonely html code may. Luckily I've begun to dust off my tomes and treasures so back into her lungs will I be breathing fresh air! And from this kiss of life I hope to find many new and wonderful creations.

Very soon I'll be meeting once more with my friends to print. Our group seldom meets more than once a month and I have pictures and stories of our last gathering. For now, however, I'd like to highlight the beauteous work of one Marina Terauds.
etching by Marina Terauds
First I saw her work connected to a book exposition, the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair, to be visited by the Corcoran College of Art and Design in the eastern United States. Here etchings have beautiful movements, deliberate focus, and are beautifully wiped. Seeing her images has re-kindled some of my own desire to etch!

Coming soon will be photos of my group's last meet up.
