2014. Took 8 days to create.

I had this piece of wood for quite some time. I saw the eye in the knot early on, but I struggled to find the rest of the figure until one day I turned the piece vertically and there was the horse. I hurried to my computer and pulled up some shots I had taken in Maryland when visiting a dear friend. I had stood in the pasture with this very curious horse. We grew to be friends. Mainly because I snuck him treats from the barn.

Every wood print starts with finding the right piece of wood. I sit with the wood for quite some time until an image begins to appear. I then set to making the emulsion transfer. It can take me days of printing, transferring, sanding and re-applying until I get what I saw in the piece of wood to meld with the image that is its match. The result is a piece that can never be created again.
