Nice Hat

Nice Hat

This is an etching with chine collé that I did in a winderful printmaking class. The hat reminds me both of one Kiyoko wore at the Haiku Retreat--before she began to lose her memory--and the sort of bonnet that might have been worn by one of my great-grandmothers who crossed the plains. At the time I did this I was making a series of images with a woman and and bird in each one. I am not done with this yet; it has been the source of some interesting things that surprised me. I have no idea where this chicken came from, but he seems to have a certain insouciance. . .
