Year of the Water Horse

An etching made for the Year of the Water Horse, 2014. Intaglio etching and aquatint with hand-blended color.

An arabian horse of water racing over the dunes, emerging moments ago from a hidden desert oasis, cloaked in the shadow of the changing hills. In its footprints, it leaves behind precious water, the desert drinking it eagerly, quenching an eternal thirst. But the horse cannot run forever, eventually swallowed up by the sands.
