Jetty - a new etching

Browsing the internet one day I made a discovery, a word that I felt I had been searching for for a long time. I don't think there is a true alternative in English - if you know of one please let me know. It's the Swedish word MANGATA which according to the The Guardian translates as 'the road-like reflection of the moon on water'. What a wonderful word! One single word to describe a theme/motif that has run through my work on and off for a long time. I was very excited by the discovery that I had stumbled across by accident and it has sparked some new ideas. They need some time to develop but I think this etching might be the beginning.

Hi Rhonda, thank you. The weekend was great! I took a certain little boy to watch monster trucks and quad bikes racing at the beach for Bournemouth's Wheels festival. He rather enjoyed it, though I prefer the beach a little quieter myself ;o) Best wishes.
