Horse Play


After adulation of crowds
the peace and quiet of clouds:
having won every race
on earth, the champion mare
dreamed of dressage in the air-
with her jockey riding high
on a tightrope in the sky.

- Sue Verney

Into the Clouds, 2014, linocut, 15 x 20 cm

This post features a poem by Sue Verney as a response to my print Into the Clouds. Horses have inspired artists and writers for centuries and their magic has certainly moved Sue and I.

I'm also participating in an exhibition and fundraiser at the Australian Print Workshop from 28 Nov - 28 Feb. and this is the print they'll be showing and offering for sale. See the previous post for more details.
