A Silent Pass 11.5x8.75 etching



This etching is called Silent Pass because it is my understanding that an owl makes no noise when in flight.I am not sure that I have convincingly shown depth in this work but I repeated the shape of the owls head in the tree in hopes it would make the piece more eye catching.  SOLD

Another terrific intaglio! You work the whole plate to great effect and animate the background so that every bit of it is interesting. Love it!

Another awesome etching. The owl and it's shadow are superb and I really like the way you used the same shape in the hollow of the tree.
