Le Petit Elephant

Here is a print I made last year when I was a studio aid at Lane Community College's Printmaking studio. It is a monotype, which means there is only one. Monotype is a messy, sticky, but interesting form of printmaking. There is a lot of painterly emotion in each print, but it is very difficult to control the process, so a pleasing result is rather thrilling. All the harder to part with, however. I am not a proponent of performing elephants, so this little guy is playing with an umbrella he found IN THE WILD.
