Then I copied a drawing of the moon that I had drawn six summers ago in Chiusi Citta in Italy, a small fresco in the chiesa di San Francesco, dating from the middle of the 16th century. I love this little moon, which carries its phases sort of like a head scarf in folds around its face. It reminds me of the buckeye in its case, so I plan to add it to the woodcut diagonally from the buckeye in the composition.
At the bottom are a few nuts that are lying around on the porch table. The half shell at bottom right was thoroughly cleaned out by a tiny animal, maybe a chipmunk.
