A Clear Midnight
Oil on canvas
100cm x 100cm x3cm
Heavy impasto in part - an abstraction of a deep midnight sky, after the poem by Walt Whitman.
This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou
Night, sleep, death and the stars.
