Artist's description:

Leaving the daylight fading behind her, Evening meets Hypnos the God of Sleep centre-stage in an 'almost kiss'... their direct gaze, even from his sightless eyes, illustrates the passion between them and that most exciting attraction of opposites. Even though he is cold and 'Of the night' his chest hair holds the smallest of hints of warmth and a heart!

A blend of inspiration: my interest in mythology, the wonderful Hypnos mask in the British Museum, the love of the lush, quiet landscape in which I live and my adoration of all things romantic!

Things that were also springing to mind as I worked:
Earth meeting sky...(she is rising up from the land, from those little structured bushes, to meet him in the dark clouds).

Painted on canvas in layers of acrylic, the image is strongly divided into two - pinks, yellow, white on the left and dark blue, black on the right.

The image is painted around the edge of the canvas.
Ready to hang so no need for a frame.

Carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, bubble wrapped, sent by Tracked delivery with a Certificate of Authenticity.
