the original sketch Jaune Quick-To See Smith made of her print before
arriving at UNT were drawn on the ground at her home in New Mexico.
The surface created a rough, textural feel on the outline of the
horse that was difficult to imitate in the final press. Attempts
to recreate the texture had Smith drawing the horse figure on the
metal plates on top of materials like roofing shingles, fishbowl
pebbles, chicken wire and a mound of loose rocks. In the end, the
feeling was not imitated, but rather a new texture was created by
using a buildup of toner on the plates.
