Not waving

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!
