Original etching, printed by hand in color. Currently available archivally matted and framed, 22"x12" for $200.

By: Denise Morse

"In piece, "Winter Walk," I hoped to create the close, blanket-like feeling of the night around you in which I expressed in "Starflight's Night Canopy," another image in which I attempt to jog the other senses toward the sense of place that I experienced. These two images both evoke a cloaking magic that at once you feel both enveloped by night and at the same time suspended in great space. There is magic in the limited vision in the darkness and the uplifting vastness of the night sky giving one the feeling that you could just take off into the infinite.

I often demonstrate this piece. I printed it in 2001 at the nine day long League of NH Craftsmen's Fair at Mt. Sunapee, in Newbury, NH. The colors seem to inspire oooos and ahhhs from the people watching when the print is pulled from the plate."
