Medusa – a painting a day
5″x4″ 12.5cm x 11cm etching print on heavyweight rag paper
By now I should be heading back to London with mother who should be all chattered out with a wedge of completed crosswords behind her. She and B. met on their first day at University and found that they were both doing Maths and Physics, they were both Methodists and both came from the North…then they both taught, got married , both had two girls and then a boy. A friendship spanning 60 years should really have a party along the lines of a diamond wedding …..I’ve never heard of it and have only just had the notion, and have also missed the occasion by several years.
Today’s picture is the first etching I ever did, its Medusa trying to look her best in order to catch a mans eye and turn him to stone. She’s been like that ever since people stopped thinking of her as an important god and saying she was ugly. She could have done with Max Clifford.
