Small Yard Bird Etchings

Here are a few of my small yard bird etchings. See what you think. This one is titled "Humming Along" It has an embossed border. It measures 6" x 8"These etchings are printed on 100% rag paper. I created the image on a zinc plate. Then I ink this zinc plate and wiping off the excess ink. Then the plate is put on my French tool press and pulled through.

Here is Spangles measuring 2 1/2" x 8"

and Cardinal Time measuring 4"x6"

Time to be Born 3"x4" &

Waiting for Mom, 2"x3'
American Redstart, image area 5"x7", You Rang image area , Common Yellowthroat COYE 5"x7"

I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
