Here is Main Main again. She is my model for my etching plate. Finally, I am picking up my printmaking technique again. The last time I did my etching prints that was in 2002. I love to do etching. The fun part of etching is like cooking. Each print won't be the same, the paper , the ink color, the press all can affect the printing. Working drawing on the metal plate is not only one step which is fun. Hard ground , soft ground, aquatint ... all those technique surprise me sometimes.
She is my family, my sister -- Mian Mian -- I don't want to remember how old she is now, but I remember last time I talked about her with my sister. She is over 18 years old. In cat's cycle, 18 years old = human being 90 years old. She is old but still acts like 5 years old. My dad gives her fresh fishes once a while, She got spoiled. Even the tiny little fish without bone you notice, she still leaves the head and tail on the plate.
Every time when I am back to my hometown, She always followed me at home in the first day. To keep me company.
