    Makes me think of the story of Bob Frisch wandering off into the green for a few days….

    Hi Sharon, yup that’s the story behind this print so many years ago!

    Perched on his outdoor biffy with the door swung wide open, the beckoning lush green foliage overwhelmed him. He gave in to his favorite vice; spontaneous and prolonged hikes into the Yukon wilderness he knew so well. Only this time he didn’t leave word, causing some consternation and worry after a week passed by.

    He said he was “Sucked in by the green”.
