Latest piece (almost finished) - still not sure which way up it goes. Inspired by Google Earth pics of UAE shore lines.  There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. Lord Byron  Folded pen, Brause nibs, acrylic ink, gesso and water
