. . .
Working from a sketch of the view from my studio at 619 Western, I transferred the drawing onto a copper plate with a dremel tool. This is the first version, printed in red ink. I later did some more work on the plate with aquatint and sugarlift, then cut it up and put the pieces into a communal pile at Pratt Fine Arts Center. The plate and the viaduct were eventually both destroyed, and 619 Western no longer exists as an artists’ building. So it goes.
