Artist's description:

In the early morning, on my way to the beach with the dogs, i see hares in the fields, so graceful and such fun to watch leaping and hopping, playing in the early morning light.

This is a handprinted aquatint etching where the upper edge is cut to shape with the help of a plasma cutter, the plate looks fantastic on the paper with the emboss of the copper very visible ; I ink up the copperplate for each print pulled, this means that each print will have small differences to the next. I hope you treasure this as a sign of individuality and part of what makes an original print an original. I use first class papers and ink to give my work the best possible longevity.
Aquatint is a technique where deep tones can be achieved on an etching, it involves rosin, that gets melted onto the copperplate with the help of a burner.
If you would like to see me make and print an etching, go to
the "me at work" section in this shop, I have some of my Youtube printmaking films there.

"Morning Glory" is printed in an edition of only 100 prints,please be aware that I can't guarantee that you get the number on the photo......
Each print is numbered, titled and signed by me.

"Morning Glory" is printed on a piece of warm cream printmaking paper, perfect for the image,
the paper measures 9" x 12" (23 x 30 cm)
and the actual copper plate where the image is etched measures 9.5" x 5.5" (24 cm x 14 cm)

I'll mail your etching in a padded envelope, the print is placed on a piece of backing, wrapped in cellophane and comes with a nice "Original Print by Mariann Johansen-Ellis" sticker and a leaflet explaining what an etching is. If you are giving the etching away as a gift, let me know and I'll wrap it in a nice piece of paper for you!

Thank you for looking in my shop and very welcome back!
