My new engraving

I have just completed this engraving. I began working on the copper plate in Venice this fall and brought it back to the US with me just before Christmas. I have worked on it since things quieted down after the holidays and after many late nights of work, finished it two days ago. The plate dimensions are 8 1/4 x 19 3/4"(21x50.2 cm) It combines two adjacent views from our terrace, which is located at the junction of four canals. The view is along Rio Sant' Agositn towards the Ponte Sant'Agostin and, to the right, towards Rio Marin. Many of the drawings I posted this spring through fall are of views from the terrace.
I have begun a second plate that continues the view around to Ponte de le Oche, and I hope to finish it this week.

This is just wonderful! I didn't even know that you had undertaken this project. You are a hard worker, and still as talented (if not more so) than ever. I heartily agree with the above commenter and am very proud to call you my mother!!

Thank you!.There was a lot going on while you were here and the plate didn't look like much then. I've been working pretty hard on this as well as many other things since then.
