This piece started as an archival print on Hot Press Natural 300lb Epson paper. The image was then peeled off after it had been painted. Archival art mediums were used, acrylics and micron pens predominantly. It is 4x4" and mounted on a primed and sealed wood panel with a coat of Liquitex Acrylic Varnish to protect it (UV resistant) front and back. 6-24-2022, (c) all rights reserved, Richard ChauDavis

The darkspace goes all the way back to college where I did an etching on what was going on in my head. The first Darkspace was with Sherrill in Santa Barbara, the next one on Marengo where we painted a garage black and Maria built me a dark room for developing images. The third was on Jackie Dr.
I used to print a proof sheet or have a whole roll printed into 4x6 pictures. Now I import into Lightroom to do basic developing and cropping where I can get an idea how to work each individual picture in a set. These are not actual proof sheets (I shredded those).
Very fun and it led to things... Supercharged some of the artists participating.
Ray at Night was a lot of fun for quite a while. Latter Art gave way to Beer, which is much more marketable and tastes better.
