Happy Mother's Day

This print: "Many Happy Returns" was commissioned by the Southern Ohio Museum in Portsmouth in 1993.
The museum was going to celebrate their 15th birthday. I had a few pictures in a still life exhibition there. We brainstormed to make a print as a fundraising gift. Their logo has an Ionic column, so of course I was interested. A drawing about birthdays and reincarnation was done on frosted acetate and exposed directly to an offset litho plate. It was printed at Evans printing in Chagrin Falls, OH. It is technically an original offset print. Usually offset prints are reproductions in that a camera image of an original image is used.
