Geoffrey Moss Pool Series | Deep End (2008) Oil on canvas. (24 x 24 inches)

Moss is a wonderful painter and illustrator. He made the illustrations for my aunt’s book ‘Benjamin’s Ring’ (Link here) about Wagner’s ‘Ring Cycle’. Gorgeous and haunting, it’s a children’s book and the type that’ll fill adults and kids with that sense of enchantment and dread.
