Summer Moon by William H. Hays 10-color linoleum block print, 9 inch x 12 inch edition of 100. Unframed this print measures 20 x 16. Framed this print measures 22 x 18.
The forested mountains of the eastern United States have been a part of William Hays' life from the beginning. In summer the humid air creates gauze curtains of atmosphere which partially obscure each layer of hills and forest in the distance. Hays tells us, "The basic idea for this image came from seeing the moonrise in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee back in 1987. The image always stuck with me and I composed this image (almost 30 years later) with layers of transparent hues to get the feeling of that tonal poem of color."
