. . .
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, then did some further work on the plate with an aquatint process. This is a “ghost print,” meaning I ran the plate through the press a second time without re-inking it. The original, more intensely colored version of this image is sold, and this is kind of a bonus print. I eventually cut the plate up and put the pieces into a communal pile at Pratt Fine Arts Center. The plate and the viaduct were eventually both destroyed, having served their respective purposes.
