Graphic Studio Dublin Sponsors' Portfolio 2010

Amaryllis, Lapis Lazuli and Gold, etching, paper:46cm x 38cm, image:17cm x 21cm, Edition of 75, available through Graphic Studio Gallery

The first in a series intended to raise funds to support the studio, Graphic Studio Dublin's 2010 portfolio includes, in addition to my own etching, prints by Carmel Benson, Donald Teskey and Kelvin Mann in addition to a short story by Roddy Doyle. Wanting to create a link between the works without imposing a theme, the colour Ultramarine which is derived from Lapis Lazuli, was chosen by the participating artists as the visual thread which would provide that link, each of us has used it in our finished piece, while Roddy Doyles contribution is entitled 'Ultramarine'.
