Two mistle thrushes sing out in a still and tranquil landscape. This etching is inspired by the poetry of Thomas Hardy and is reflective and concerns the triumph of hope over gloom. Hope is encapsulated in the joyous song of the birds.
This etching is printed on Somerset Velvet, an off-white heavyweight 300 gsm handmade paper. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
