This portrait is absolutely beautiful. I love drypoint and you have used the medium brilliantly. Is this part of a series?

Thank you, Natalie, you are generous in your praise! Yes, it is the first of a small series of five that I did inspired by Jim Dine's way of working on an image repeatedly, changing it each time. I used to do a lot of drypoints because it is so much like drawing, as you will see with some of the older works I'm putting up now.
