Lovely Art = Good Mail

I was honored and thrilled to receive this beautiful piece of art by Ellen Heck in the mail recently. I've admired Ellen's art and unique style for a while. She uses subtle patterns and intense detail to complement areas where detail is left to the viewer's imagination. I am captivated by her print portfolio + A Century; the relationship between the figures and their activity is ever so delicate and sweet, I could stare at them for hours contemplating what the figure is thinking, or perhaps what kind of sounds or music might be heard softly in the background of the scene. Above: Leslie & Peachy.

I believe this print is made from a multiple-plate combination of drypoint and aquatint on copper over woodcut. Ellen is an artist-in-residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley and a fellow native Texan. See more of her lovely work here. Thanks, Ellen!
