THUNDER & LIGHTNING ETCHINGS

The horse characters, Thunder and Lightning, have been my artistic muse and obsession for about 49 years, or since I was about 6.

The Etching series of “Thunder and Lightning” is based on a 1965 collections of pen and paper drawings and writings that my parents had kept. It was first recreated as hand colored etchings, at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.  I included the words writen and dictated to my parents as a child http://www.carolbuchman.net/themes/005/index.htm  and http://carolbuchman.org/thunder--lightning-original-drawings-and

The series you see here, are a new group of hand colored solar plate etchings based on the same original drawingss, but expanded on to form a book “Thunder and Lightning, A Trip to the Clouds”, which is currently seeking publication. (Author Susan Dynerman has writen new text not shown here).

Many of these images are also now large paintings, wonderful for children's rooms !http://carolbuchman.org/thunder-and-lightning
