The printmaker members of the Salmagundi Club who were running the show that day were overjoyed at the turnout. The downside was the lengthy wait for the press. The upside was that we were all having a grand time and it didn’t matter.

Referring to a sketch, that had been drawn from life in a tiny gridded notebook one day while in Union Square Park, I drew/painted the image on the copper plate that was used in the monotype process. Oil based printing ink, Arches printmaking paper, etching press.
