"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Summer Moondance - Nightjars
6 Colour Reduction Linocut. 270mm x 180mm.
Edition of 6.

A final dark finishes the print off. I suppose that having dealt with Spring and Summer as themes I should tackle Autumn and Winter to finish off the set. This will have to wait for now though, as the next few weeks are going to be busy with framing and preparing work for forthcoming exhibitions.

I have two prints to frame for Holmfirth Art Week and another two to frame for the Summer Exhibition at Talents Fine Arts in Malton. After that its five prints for the Calder Gallery in Hebden Bridge Summer Print Show and then a selection of unframed prints to mount ready for Art in the Pen at Skipton and the Pendle Print Biennial near Colne at the end of August. I also have to frame 30 prints for a solo exhibition at the Grizedale Forest visitor centre in the Lake District which starts on the 7th September.

Stuart, it's been ages since I've had time to drop in and see what you've been up to and it's great seeing all your latest work.

This is beautiful! I have a real affinity for night images and this one works so well.
