26"H x32"W. Lithograph on slate blue highly textured heavyweight paper.

The eagle stalks creating a black cloud above the heads of all of those it releases it’s potion upon by uncorking it’s bottle. Sometimes it drops one of it’s feathers, but you have to be lucky enough to catch it.


Scratches and ink spots are part of the composition.

Edges of paper are torn in true rag paper fashion, and pressed against a black paper background on the original.

Great poster!

    This is a real eye-catcher, Lacey. Love the story behind it too.

  • Thanks so much, I am glad you like the story! It’s always nice to hear what exactly it is that people like, rather than them just telling you that they like it!
    (However, I am always honored to be recognized for any reason, and if someone ‘just likes’ it is good enough for me!)

  • Thank you so much for the feature! I think that many people who have not had the joy ( and tedious time & effort it takes to pour yourself into this “lost art” of lithography) do not understand why I leave the rough edges. it is to show the beauty of the paper itself. If I “cookie-cutter” cut out this image on the huge piece of breathtaking handmade looking paper you would not be able to see all of the fibers, textures, & colors it takes to make it! Even those who practice this fine art & use the whole sheet… which is often the size of the artist… tear the edges most of the time (which in & of itself is a difficult thing to do correctly). This is so you can see all of the layers , fibers, colors, & textures of the paper itself. Unfortunately this does cont show up in RB as it does in real life (& i’ve debated going back to make cropped digital copies) as I think the way the edges are displayed here deter many people from even stopping to look at the image…simply because they think it looks amateurish.
    That’s okay…they are not familiar with the technique, so I don’t blame them…however this is why I’ve recently added details.
    But many thanks for the feature…this piece made my fingers bleed, back hurt, & took many hours to accomplish as I had to use a hand-cranked print press to get six semi-“perfect”, exact-as-possible original prints. I may sell a few of them in the future…the detail work in real life, as apposed to digital format is pretty incredible.
    For those of you who don’t know what lithography is, I strongly suggest you google it! It is an amazing (painstaking, yet delightful) process!…and it never hurts to learn something! :)

    I dont quite know what is going on here but that is why I like it. Part bird, part plant, part figure. Very nice print. Sometimes things are more interesting without an explanation. Open to interpretation.

  • Yes, I like to give a small portion of interpretation to my work most of the time, because I always have a concept behind it…even if it looks simple. But you are correct…I always prefer to hear what the viewer gets out of it! I explained the process a bit in a reply directly above yours. If you don’t know what lithography is & you are just interested in learning what a different art form is & how you get from step “A to Z”, I suggest you google it! (you may already know the process, but I did not when I found myself under the wings of a few good master lithographers!)
    I always google artforms I have never heard of, or even some that I have heard of, but don’t really know how they come about. IMHO, it never hurts to learn…:)
    …and if you already know the process, sorry for the long answer, but I hope others may read this & learn from it too! You never know what will be helpful to know to prepare you for your future!
    I appreciate your complement immensely! Complements to my work are treasures to me!

    I agree with youI used to work for a printer and learned the dying art of bookbinding years ago . I love the look and texture of your work and can appreciate the time, effort and love that has gone into it . It’s beautiful , true art !!

  • Thanks so much Jane!
    There’s really no way a digital version could ever come close to doing it justice!
