Mondnacht (pen &ink on c/pressed illustration board) by 

An image inspired by Robert Schumann’s musical piece of the same name…it more or less describes a yearning for home…“Home is where the heart is and the mind forever wanders,” as the saying goes…a particularly dark period of my life which produced something of worth…I hope.

    You are killing me now love these two pieces you have recently uploaded!
    Something of worth…? Indeed!
    Emotions are very much intertwined with creativity IMHO… What a glorious piece you gave light to produced from that darkness.

    Wow, and wow again. I LOVE this image. The wheat and rabbit in the foreground are exceptional. I could just get lost in all that detail in the wheat. Wonderful work. I love all your ink work.

  • Thanks yet again, Lisa…another “oldie”…Rory.
