We are having a very warm few days in the UK!
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.

Now, come on! Which of you ate those toes?
Another weird fantasy set of creatures pulled out of random marks.
This is just the beginning of the piece. At lesson 23, the year’s work is nearly done. It’s been brilliant! Year of the Spark has followed Year of the Fairy Tale – both with Carla Sonheim. This year Lynn Whipple has provided half the lessons. Super mix of talents.
Next year it will be Y is for Yellow. Watch this space…
Is she blushing or having a quiet cough in the wings? Quirky figure collage. Image measures 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).
Another from my series about the Moeraki boulders. Silly but colourful! The image is 8×10 inches (25.5×20 cm), painted in various acrylic media on paper.
One of a series of paintings referring to the amazing Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand. The image is 10×8 inches (25.5×20 cm) painted on paper with a variety of acrylic products.
A woman’s face. Her expression is sad, lost in her own thoughts maybe. An experimental collage which seems to be complete at this stage. I like it anyway!
Mixed media on paper, the image measures 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).
