Stormy weather -

"Blue Water Sail"
tempera-on-paper by Mick Mather
Today's post is allegorical in some ways. I've been struggling and restless with my artwork lately and this old tempera sketch has a lot to say about the way I've been feeling: at sea, rough and unfinished, flying in the face of danger, unsettled, fearful that all of this may go under, away, sinking out of sight! At the same time, there's no meaningful gain without some risk so I set sail every day, ploughing through choppy waves without a compass. What this usually means is, the wind is about to change - that I'm close to another series of meaningful work or on my way to a change in style. We shall see, one day at a time, yes?
