Too Early to Tell  is a lithograph created from a line drawing of Preacher’s Grove in Itasca State Park.

This lithograph was completed at the Grafische Wekstatt in Salzburg, Austria while doing a residency there.  It is a 2-color lithograph, hand drawn and printed by Faye Passow. The image starts with a line drawing which is done plein air at the site of the subject matter. I apply a black rectangle of ink to a litho stone and then trace the line drawing onto the ink surface, which has been buffed with talc for handling purposes. I then scrap out negative areas using single edge razor blades and not necessarily following any logic. The stone is etched, processed, re-etched and printed. I then use a proof of the black to create the second color, a transparent aqua blue, which is also scraped from  a litho stone with a black ink rectangle applied to it. The image is created in black but printed in the transparent blue. The blue is printed over the black. Finally a bit of sparkly dust is sprinkled over the print to increase the feeling of early morning freshness. This image was printed with technical and printing assistance from Martin Gredler, director of the Grafische Wekstatt. Hand lithographs are multiple originals. This lithograph has a limited edition of 18 with 2 Artist’s Proof. Each one is an original.

Too Early to Tell  received 2nd Place at the Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Exhibition in 2014. It was also exhibited in Stand Out Prints, 2014, a juried exhibition at High Point Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis as well as the 23rd Annual Juried Exhibition at the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids, Minnesota in  2015  and Minnesota Surrealists, a two-person exhibition at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
