At the Virginia Center for Creative Arts this winter, eleven inches of snow fell the first weekend of my month’s stay and eight more the next. We worked a boot path in the snow, from the dorms to the studios in what we remembered of the walk underneath. This print is of the view along that path, the blurred lines of sodden pine boughs and snowdrifts swept with the wind.
Below is one of the handheld, pinhole images of a wooden sculpture that I first worked up quickly at VCCA. I later scanned the negatives for detail and toned them brown. This image is 10 inches square, printed at Indian Hill Imageworks on Fabriano Artistico–14 x 17-inches.
