Happy International Dog Day 2023!

Happy International Dog Day!
These two dry-points were produced many years ago. I was walking in the Lickey Hills north of Birmingham on a summer’s day and a young man, stripped to the waist, was walking his dog. The man had a large tattoo of a seated naked woman on his back. The relationship between the man and his dog struck me and when I returned home I worked two aluminium plates. These prints do not appear on my website and I have no record of what I called them..I do not even know if there are any of the limited edition left! I’ll have to investigate my plan chest drawers at the studio next week.
I have just noticed that the plates are dated August 1981..no wonder I cannot recall what their titles are!
