“Asymmetrical grace” won a First Place prize in the Tampa Regional Artists’ exhibition “Art in the Garden.” This is one of three monoprints I entered into this show. Dozens of beautiful original watercolors, acrylic and drawings showcase floral interpretations, and I’m truly honored that Terry Denson (FWS) selected my piece for this prize.
To create this piece, I inked up a plain monotype plate with various colors, then impressed some relief blocks into the ink before running it through the etching press. Then, I drew the flowers onto the image using Derwent Inktense pencils, and painted the flowers with Akua Liquid Pigments.
“Art in the Garden” is showing at the Old Hyde Park Art Center through June 8, 2023.
