mistakes....



this is an etching that one of my students made a few years ago. She used soft ground and there were some flaws in the ground meaning that the acid has fouled the plate in many areas but I love it and think that it is the flaws that make it enchanting... unfortunately the student didn't share my opinion.....
in our youth imperfection is a flaw, as we grow old it is the irregularities of life that we relish, the worn patina that provide the character of life!
