Tuesday Tales – Up In The Air

A Far Green Country

A Far Green Country

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.

Over A Swift Sunrise

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.
