"In the print a stylized full moon is shown with elements of design that I have chosen to better reflect the fullness of the moon. I have brought the eye out of its usual space into the form line of the moon. I do this in most of my current paintings. This is a new process (of bringing the eye out) I started in 2002 after I returned from the U.A.E.
The crescent moon has a soft and gentle feminine face. Through the two moons a roll of a soft cloud is visible.
I chose the title 'Affinity' because the publisher of this print had read about my affinity to the moon. I thought that this title was perfect. (Thank you, Claus.)
When I gaze upon this print it is my hope that I have conveyed both, the strength and the softness of the moon. At least, that was my intent."
This limited edition silkscreen print titled "Affinity" by Francis Dick was hand produced by the screen printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist has inspected and signed each copy in the edition. All trial copies of this edition have been destroyed and the printing stencils obliterated.
