portrait hand etching on granite

This portrait was very difficult to complete. The original photo was small, dark, and out of focus. I love the way it turned out though. it is completely hand engraved on black granite.
It is finished with enamel paint. thanks for looking!


  1. Hi Catherine. This portrait is amazing! I can understand the difficulty since I used to do deep carve sandblasting on glass. One wrong move and its over! You have created a truly fine piece.

  2. Hi Judy Thank you so much! I have been etching granite since around 1993. Although I haven't done many lately. I love the medium. It is so nice of you to comment.

  3. I thought this was a photo or painting at first! it's fabulous! lord you are so talented!
