Three dark-sky pieces nod to the arresting grandeur of clear night skies and a universe beyond.

These are constructed first of many thin layers of semi-transparent etching ink printed on mulberry or RIves papers and stored away in my flat-files for later use. The surface drawing was added over a few months with colored conté crayon and carbothelo pencils.
