This acid-etched work represents the SIXTH STATION OF THE CROSS, which depicts Veronica cleaning the face of Jesus. There are fourteen STATIONS, a Lenten meditational tool in Anglican- & Roman-Catholic and Episcopal Churches that outlines Christ’s Death and Passion.
I used the techniques of intaglio, drypoint, and aquatint; the print was executed using a mixture of black ink (oil-based, Charbonnel Brand) on Rives BFK tan paper (both manufactured in France).
The framed size is 12” high x 16” wide (30.5 cm x 40.6 cm), and the image size is 6” high by 8” wide (20.3cm by 15.2cm). The paper size measures 11 inches high by 15 inches wide (28 cm by 38.1 cm). This print is from the first of three editions; there are only ten prints in each limited edition. At this point, I have two of the fourteen stations completed.
