‘Bessie’ Intaglio etching and aquatint The inspiration for this cow print is twofold. I loved cows as a little girl and when we lived by a farm, I would traipse off up the hill to visit the cow on the other side of the fence. I am also working on illustrations of the poems by Edgar Lee Masters 'Spoon River Anthology" The poem of interest is Roger Heston. The poem is about his favourite metaphor 'Prickett's Cow' and free will.
