On a cold sunny morning in january artist David Dent got a phone call from trainer Dai Burchell an ex steelworker, asking if he would like to accompany them to Aberafon beach to watch the horses work as the gallops were frozen.The hot breath of exertion and the pounding of the sand beneath the splashing water are evoked in an image that the artist was clearly humbled himself to behold.
From Here to Eternity celebrates the dignity of the backstage boys of horse racing...from where all the glory stems.
A timeless image; beautifully executed with a bold use of a variety of watercolour techniques to achieve the atmosphere, this is a powerful yet serene image. With the title, it is often chosen as a gift for weddings presents anniversaries, etc. and there aren't many left so hurry to guarantee your copy! EDIT: These are now sold out, though we do have two we have bought back for sale at £225
