This portfolio consists of ten etchings, inspired from Gaelic poems and prose. The etchings extend the themes of the constructed works such as "Dancers". A yellow oilskin shines brightly in the night framed by the edge of a boat and the silhouette of a cabin. The image recalls "Skye Fisherman; In Memoriam" (1989) which is also in the Dundee's collection.
