Land Gone to Sea
Watercolour, Tempera (22 x 32ins) (2010)
Labour in Vain Fields Series DT2
Land gone down washed up beach drained at shore rinsing bay to the lips emotions past dredging oyster boat with venus mast lapper constant shouts at the tidal talker clouds sail above a hundred ship wrecks dashed down labour in vain. Below glinting seahorse homes in a coral reef rinsing tides submerged lagoon summer simmer global rain dims to dimmer below decks are blazing bright beacon warning sight. Opaque flat reaches feed the constant mist to crave the divide of sky and sea summer flavours miscible in diesel rain plastic wrappers ethered in city grime. Downhill waters roll land to shore rinsing pond fills and drinks fresh encounters daily trips with rain dropped softened sails pebbles crash and click to washing sea fish shoals below decks line caught labour in vain.
