What's with the sailboats you might ask? hmmm... I really have no idea! I was listening to a program on Thursday night on tvo called 'Art of Germany' (a great show!)and the narrator described the sailboats in Casper Friedrich's art as symbolising 'life's great journey'. heh heh. not quite sure that's the case here! heh.
Something's still gurgling away in my mind on another theme i've been working on though; it's to do with the 'County Tour' theme that I've been working on in my larger oil paintings. I decided to start an interpretive painting to get to the bottom of it. The only thing that seemed fitting to try and work it out was to work in an abstract manner. And that was a surprise even for me! So far, I'm liking where it's heading, you can see it hanging on the white-washed doors in my studio. I'll post again when I complete it.
