Artist's commentary: Professor David Burt introduced me to the short story, "Rocking Horse Winner" in his literature class. At one time I lived in my parent's basement on my father's new farm, I set this image of a rocking horse under the old furnace hot air ducts. I cut the wood fast, and thought about that short story.

About Robin Abel: "Robin Abel is a Northwest native whose life was altered by the incident that nearly killed her daughter Maria Federici. She would prefer to live a quiet life with her golden retrievers and garden but is compelled to share this story in order to prevent future tragedies due to unsecured loads." This description is from the Website where she and co-author, Peggy Sturdivant, show their book, "Out of Nowhere." Click here to see more.
