August 2016: Print of the Month

“Summer, Donegal”

7″ x 9″
Monotype on rag paper.
I’d traveled to artist Derek Hills’s remote corner of Ireland to paint landscapes together. Within days, he was gone, summoned to Sweden to paint the queen. Setting out alone, was sketching on a sunny Donegal hillside when the rain began. Gathered my soggy sketch pad and ran for shelter. Years later, came across the drawing and decided to use it for a monotype. Just before printing, I decided to add the rain.
