Today’s print is the second in a series of 4 which were inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.
This plate represents one of a pair of “twins,” Desire — whose sister is Despair. This time I used delicate lace to give texture to the top half of the plate, and below we have a pile of shiny, discarded hearts. The face of Desire is reflected in the largest, central heart, vague yet compelling as it represents the secret desires hiding in us all.
Desire, 2″x2.75″ etching on 6″x6″ watercolor paper, 1/1, $199 with free shipping.
