I made this piece in a printmaking atelier in Venice. It was a wonderful few days. Printing and then collaging the materials to make a new piece.
There was a plaque on the brick wall near the entrance identifying the building as "once the home of writer George Sand. Working in this very old building you felt surrounded by history and the feeling of connecting with years of other who had worked in this seasoned place.
My friend Pat was working there at the same time. We did not talk much those days - each in our own worlds - working on our art work. But there is a strong communication between artists when they share creative space. We often talked about that time later. And when she told me afterwards of work she was doing in the atelier on later trips I was glad to know and visualize the place she talked about.
