This lithograph was completed during a residency at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, North Dakota. It is a 5-color lithograph, hand drawn and printed by Faye Passow. The black run was drawn first using razor blades to achieve tone by scraping away a thin layer of ink from a fully inked litho stone. The stone has a fine texture and the scraping removes ink and particles of stone to reveal the light areas. This image is then printed on mylar and becomes the template for the color runs which are also drawn on a litho stone. Each color is drawn separately and printed from a stone after which the image is erased from the stone so the next can be drawn. The black image is printed second to last. The final color is a transparent yellow/brown which is printed over most but not all of the image which intensifies the black and adds depth to the colors. Hand lithographs are multiple originals. This lithograph has a limited edition of 28 with 2 Artist’s Proofs. Each one is an original.
