The Summer-Time When Life is Quickened Everywhere

3 November 2011

Here’s another one of the ‘landscape on its head’ canvas shapes, which should probably be called called ‘portrait’.  It’s too long and skinny for me to think of it as a ‘portrait’ though.  If I were a practical person, the clock would be ticking in this image, and I could sell it as a practical kitschy object.  But I am not.  The time is stuck at the turn of the day, thus working ironically with the ‘quickening’ the title suggests. Indeed. And so it came to pass. Whatever it was.
