To Sail Beyond Sunset

I am still framing work for the 2010 Vashon Island Holiday Art Studio Tour .  Posted above is a small monotype that will be part of my show.  It is inspired by these few lines from Tennyson’s poem Ulysses . Come, my friends, ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. My Mixed Media Monotype, " To Sail Beyond Sunset ," is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in.
