Almost Home – Walking By Moonlight Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.
This walking by moonlight metal print is titled “Almost Home.” This work was actually done based on a reference image for an art contest that showed a road in Britain in the daytime. There was no moon but when I saw the empty sky and bare winter tree limbs crossing it, this moonlit scene with a night sky is what came to my mind. When I look at this I’m reminded of moonlit walks and the bracing air of cool winter nights. Oddly the one that comes to mind specifically is of a night in Ireland years back walking with fellow travelers to a nearby pub. The moon seemed so large in the dark winter night’s sky. It felt honestly larger than I’ve depicted in this artwork.
There was a crowd of us that night but in my scene, as you can see I’ve pared it down to a couple walking along a dark road with their dog. Lit mainly by moonlight they are almost in shadows. At the end of the wall you can see a glowing that suggests their destination is near at hand. Home? Or maybe I should have titled it “Almost at the Pub?” Ha!
What attracts you to this walking by moonlight metal print? Does it remind you of a night with someone special? Or perhaps you just love the story it tells? I hope you’ll share your thoughts.
