Artwork / high school and college / Ida and Lily

soft ground intaglio print of two old women
Gwenn Seemel
Ida and Lily
intaglio print on paper
4 x 4 inches

Though printmaking made me the painter I am today by introducing me to the idea of crosshatching, I haven’t done any intaglio work like Ida and Lily since getting my BA. I have, however, made figurative art similar to this image of a touching moment between two residents from the retirement home where I volunteered in high school. My favorite is probably being this mixed media painting showing three kids being creative together.
