In this autumn wind
That flings its tent roof of clouds
Across the evening
A tattered rent lets escape
The full, bright disk of the moon
This is one of the 100 prints done over a 10 year period. 10 per year.
A painstaking process of precision, patience, and love.
I am adding more to this collection of the prints my brother had. Unfortunately he did not collect all 100 of the collection.
Please enjoy this offering of fine quality art.
