flora consulting cupid - in progress

this is an intaglio I created for a valentine fun show at City Arts in Wichita, Kansas. I wanted to convey a sort of sadie hawkins situation in which a young girl captures cupid and takes matters into her own hands.

I printed on marbled paper I made and combined hard ground and aquatint. I put $5.00 on it and it didn't sell. Fancy that.

Anyway in the next image you will see that public rejection is mother's milk to me and I never get rid of anything I've ever done - no matter how sappy or ill made. It generally is the best i can do at the time.
