dying peony

dying peony by brent haddock, 12 x 9 intaglio-type etching, $250 unframed

While gallery hopping in Park City one summer evening, I happened on to a secluded garden area that was home to this beautiful peony. Many flowers in my opinion are most beautiful on their way out. I fell in love with the textures and patterns of this dying flower. The light was perfect for creating a black and white photo sketch that would ultimately become this elegant photo etching. The print was hand printed using Graphic Chemical’s Renaissance Black ink (my favorite) on to Hahnemuhle Rag Content paper. ~ brent
