Ebb - new etching

I Decided to call it "Ebb Tide" - meaning "The receding or outgoing tide; the period between high water and the succeeding low." It also can be use as a way of describing a state of decline... which kind of goes with the Lord of the Flies feel of these "wild" images of Kanon!

and a haiku for this image and my last woodblock image:

Sea Urchin
Summers ebb and flow,
Sun glistens through the air,
Urchin on the beach.

Newest sketch to be turned into an etching...

Back to the vertical orientation that I love! Also, working on
turning my last woodblock into a much larger piece - 28"x12" ~ I'll
share the background which I sandblasted to bring out the woods grain
and the final etching of this one (I'm calling it "Ebb" but reserve
the right to change it) later!
