#9 - 30 Prints in 30 Days (Wood Horse Marionette)

"Wood Horse Marionette"
4" x 6"(image) 7.5" x 10" (paper)
Water based inks on cream-colored Stonehenge paper
Edition of 4

In an attempt to loosen up and be more expressive, I produce something even more still and geometric.


  1. It's wacky--not still. More like mechanical yet disjointed, the legs in sections barely holding together--the black and white emphasizing the coldness of the image, the poor horse trapped in the strings and bars of his fate.

  2. Thanks, mom. Maybe I just couldn't see it because I had just made it and was disappointed with how it turned out compared with what I had had in mind. It is really hard to write something objective and thoughtful about a piece I made just hours ago.
