Spirit Crucifix by Amy Crook

Spirit Crucifix by Amy Crook

I’m always frustrated by how hard it is to get beautiful, intense blues and reds to shine through in an electronic image. This monoprint retained a lot of the brush-stroke feel of the original plate, only slightly softened by its trip through the printing press.

This is my favorite of the small series of cruciform images I did at the time. It has an intense burst of sunset color with the rich, calm blue floating above it, almost like someone floating on a pool of water. There’s a real sense of peace and spirituality to it that suits the season.

Spirit Crucifix, 18″x14″ monoprint on 22.5″x15″ watercolor paper, $399 with free shipping.
