A Moment Repeating
Not For Sale
This is an attempt to capture the image of the mare with her young foal galloping away down a field. The newborn baby never leaves the protection of the mother’s side. The image of the mare and foal were sketched from our horses- Kennisis and Little Kennisis shortly after the foal was born. The drawing for this print was made with a lithograph pencil drawn directly on a large limestone surface, then copied and repeated in various sizes and directions to give the sense of the pair running off down the field. The background was added with a wash called touche, a mixture of water and charcoal. The texture of the topography came from using lines carved or from papers pressed or wiped into the touche. When the work was completed on the rock, it was then inked up with rollers and wheeled off to the press to be printed. After the printing the stone was then washed, sanded to remove the image. Four prints were possible form this one image. Each were different!

""My paintings, which are done in series, are an attempt to show beautiful locations whose natural integrity has either been altered by human intervention or is about to be. What is the cost of our imposition on the virginal status of these lands and the inhabitants therein?""
