On this May evening of cruel, capering winds and riots of hailstones, I thought I would finally present to you the fourth print in the series I have been making on the theme of 'double'. Maybe it is somewhat appropriate to share this print on a day of crazy weather, as it takes an atmospheric phenomenon as its starting point: a Brocken spectre with glory. (It is the same phenomenon that is said to be responsible for greymen, mentioned in this post.)
In this etching (20 x 30 cm) an explorer stands as high as possible, beyond the peak of a mist-shrouded mountain seeking to find herself reflected back, spread far and wide across the landscape.
I will keep this post short as I've caught a cold and am not in top form for writing at the moment. But, I should mention that in my absence from posting here I also managed to finish the fifth and final plate in this series, which I hope to share with you soon. Wishing you a lovely spring evening of fresh-grown leaves and late sun.
