Sometimes artwork is disappointing and I threw this one away! But I like the idea and the title and one day will get round to using them again.
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.

The things in my imagined landscapes come from patterns and designs that I ‘find’ as the painting grows. I heard of the Tower of Fools at an exhibition at the Wellcome Foundation a while ago. Image approx. 10×8 inches (25.5×20 cm).
Picture recently framed for upcoming summer exhibition at a local gallery. Image 8 x 10 inches (20×25 cm).
You’ve seen silly – this is sillier!

Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all. (Traditional)
