‘Tread softly’ - charcoal and pastel winter snowscape print.
Early one winter’s morning after a fresh fall of snow, the first footprints made by a faithful friend. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. A commissioned piece for a celtic lass. Kinder Scout from Mellor Road, New Mills, High Peak, Derbyshire.
The title comes from the poem by WB Yeats,
He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
