a Christmas memory
Mother & Child – etching – image size: 11 x 7 cm. (4.25″ x 3″)
I handprinted this etching in an edition of 65 for Christmas cards sometime in the mid 1980′s, I think. (The date is obscured behind the mat.) It was during a special time when I had found a wonderful print studio where I was able to take up my longed for desire to focus on printmaking. When I came across this particular framed piece in my storage recently, I recalled that it had been hanging in my late parents’ home. With those happy memories, I became inspired to use this as my online Christmas card for this year.
So my dearest friends and readers, with this I wish you a warm and love-filled holiday season, one with happy new memories to hold close. Hyvää Joulua!
