I spend a lot of time awake at night, outside walking the dogs. Living on Exmoor I have the luxury of pure moonlight without any light pollution diluting the magcal essence. This dry point etching is printed onto black etching paper in white with a translucent layer of gold that shimmers just like moonlight on a clear night. Printed on Black Somerset Printmaking Paper, with Cranfield inks.
The Moon And His Hat
The moon has got his hat on tonight
Casting his translucent shadowless light
Making magic creep through the under growth
Calling out the untamed parts our soul
Till running with the wolves seems wise
And we turn away in fear
Not from what's outside
But from what's inside us all
The Moon and His Hat in Black
Printed on Black Somerset Printmaking Paper, with Cranfield inks.
