This plate was accomplished on a weekend getaway in

8. Tomales Debut

Taken from a photo dated about 1976 the ink wash drawing on the left was done in 1980 and then became the source for the etching plate on the right also done in 1980. Note the reversal of the image (see introduction). The old fence was seen while hiking on the Tomales Pennisula near White Gulch where my boat the GAMBELLA was anchored. See additional versions here.
