I flew home today after a two week holiday out East. While I had a wonderful time on my trip (images and report to follow in a later post) I was very happy to come home. And while there are many beautiful places in this world, the sight of my island from the air always brings a big smile to my face. Whether day or night, sun, fog or rain, the view always fills me with a sense of wonder and gratitude that I can call this enchanting place home.
Naturally I had to choose these prints to present today. They are mixed media pieces based on photographs of Vancouver Island and the surrounding sea taken from the air.
Both pieces are photopolymer gravure prints on paper wrapped around a wooden board and then waxed for protection. Over A Swift Sunrise has the edges of the image showing on the sides of the board, as seen below.
A Far Green Country and Over A Swift Sunrise are offered this week at $350 each or $600 for the pair.
Ps, the titles are inspired from the passage below, one of my all time favorites in a book. Kudos to anyone here who can tell us where it’s from!
“And then it seemed to him that as in his dream … the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
Cheers to all who wander! May they find their way home to friendly shores, be they old or new.
