Feel Better - Lithograph Print
This CMYK lithograph print from 2015 illustrates a cheerful and supportive hen, doing her best to make you feel better. I was feeling rather sad the month that I made these, so I printed a small edition of chickens to cheer myself up, based on a gouache painting in my sketchbook. I gave most of them away to friends and family members that I thought needed cheering up too, but a few remain.
The edition number is very small -- only six were printed originally, and now only three remain, plus one Artist's Proof.
These prints measure approximately 23cm x 33cm, and are printed on heavy weight archival paper with raw torn edges (with the exception of the proof, which is printed on a thinner cream colored paper).
Please note that there are small differences between prints, including slight shifts in registration, small dots of ink from the printing plate, and subtle variations in tone. While not intentional features of the prints, such "imperfections" are to be expected and they serve as a reminder of the labour involved in this method of printmaking.
