Being here (in Autumn's beginning)

Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this ...
Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this final process the ink is transferred to the paper.

Its extremely time consuming and challenging as the process is full of surprises that you don't always have the ability to anticipate or control. Many of these surprises are not um... desirable. LOL

Rather like thyroid disease.

Between the Hashi's and Aquatints I should be a Zen Master by now.
Unfortunately, I am not.

Its nice to have a goal... although I can't quite decide if the goal has me.
Namaste

Turkey roasted in the oven and fire in the fireplace, layers on and I look like the freakin' Stay Puffed Man! LOLOL Still cold today, but getting more used to it. Thank goodness looks like the next 2 days will be cooperative for us to travel to my folks (2 hrs. away -- I'm bringing dinner -- that's why the turkey is roasted and carved already, so I could get it packed.)

HUGS and no fears -- staying warm (can you say HOT TODDY anyone! LOL)
