Woken by tulips

Wow! I have been shortlisted for NOA 2017. The second round is later but in the meantime there is the World Art Vote. You can vote for my picture from here.

If you would like to see other shortlisted work, go to this page. You can of course vote for several artists… but please do vote for me!

If I have asked you already elsewhere, sorry!

A weird sea picture with references to Gauguin and Stevie Smith
Not waving

I love this gloomy piece which evolved under my eyes. My visual memory was jerked by the beginnings of the hunched up figure and I found the image I recalled in a book about Gauguin (hero!) with a photo of a Peruvian mummy. I have always loved the poem by Stevie Smith  – hence the title.

Maybe all the horrifying stories of drownings in the Mediterranean influenced me as well. We can never know all the subconscious themes.

Image 10×8 inches (25.5×20 cm).

Y is for Yellow is nearly finished…

yellowblogbutton150and for my last series in the year (the 3rd series) I have been working on aspects of Eve, the apple and the snake (or variations).

All images are 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm) and are in mixed media.   They are not intended to illustrate the bible story accurately!
