Artist's Description

This is a metal etching print that used both a hard ground and a soft ground process. It was first worked with a hard ground allowing for many of the compositional areas and figure outline to be created. The soft ground textures where then added. Carpet, lace, my fingertip, and a dreaded lock of (my) hair was used to expose these textures within the copper plate. After this, I did another hard ground layer to create many delicate and more refined details that were needed to finish up the work. Hope you enjoy the print, and the timeless subject of the farmer and his dog “resting in peace” against the hay pile after the harvest.
