'Escaping the Rat-race' ('Escapandose del ajetreo')
Woodcut ~ 2008 ~ Grabado en madera
Image/Imagen: 4" x 6" (10 cm x 15 cm)
Edition/Edicion: 75


This black and white print was created for the Chinese New Year of the Rat. The inspiration came from animal shapes seen in our billowing Caribbean clouds. To enhance the 'escape', I had the clouds scudding one way and the sailboat fleeing in the opposite direction.

Available here.

Este grabado en blanco y negro fue hecho para el Ano Nuevo Chino 'Ano de la Rata'. La inspiracion vino de las formas de animales que se ven en nuestras nubes caribenas. Para dar enfasis al 'escape' puse las nubes yendo por un lado y el velero escapandose en la direccion opuesta.

De venta aqui.

My new favorite of your prints. And that was before I recognized the rat. (I'm always a sucker for an easter egg) Awesome print Diane!
