Unlikely isn’t evil. Well, I am tired of evil, so U is for Unlikely because I am tossing in a monkey wrench. U for unexpected, too.
Back to etchings: U is for Unicorn. This is titled “The Virgin and the Unicorn II”, number 10/75, 1986, H. Ottaway. The etching is 7 inches by 8 inches and the paper is 11 inches by 15 inches. She would often frame them mounted but not matted, in frames that have a slot to hold the glass away from the picture. She did her own framing and especially disliked cutting glass. I knew when a show was close because she would be framing and grumpy.
Framing is a bitch.
I hit send too soon — beautiful etching!!!
Thank you (on my mother’s behalf).
You were extremely blessed to be surrounded by such talent growing up…but was it not just once in a while a bit intimidating? I am always kind of overwhelmed when I see the variety and quality of art your family produced. Wow.
I got mad at my father for singing the wrong song at an adult part at age 2. His guitar had bottlecaps the next day.
Also my sister and I called the crayons “girl” and “boy” crayons and refused the color names, driving my mother crazy.
I think kids take their parents as they find them and then start outwitting them and asking questions. My kids certainly did!
