Got any cityscapes?
Ummm... Sure, somewhere. Might take me a while to post, I'll have to dig them up and photograph them
Here's an oil painting retelling the story of Lady Margaret, in which a woman (Lady Margaret) is looking out her bedroom window when she sees her true love (Sweet William) heading into the churchyard to be married to another woman. Later that night, William awakes to find that Margaret is standing at the foot of his bed, and she asks him how he likes his bed, his sheets, his bride. He responds that he likes his bed and sheets well enough, but that he much prefers Margaret. They kiss. In the morning he wakes, disturbed by dreams that his bower was full of red swine and his bride's bed full of blood. He goes to find Margaret, only to find that she is dead. He demands that her winding sheet be peeled back so that he can kiss her one last time, which he does, and the song ends.
It's unfinished- I need to do a bit more work on the face mostly. I modeled for Margaret, as I was the easiest compliant person to find. I tried to make it ambiguous whether she was alive or dead, and I hope I succeeded.
There's two other works in the ballad series, but one is a polyurethane seal skin that is difficult to photograph (I'll try to do so anyway) and the other was a nest of chicken bones with painted clay eggs in it and human hair, meant to go with Twa Corbies, until my dog ate the bones. I'll post the others when/if I get around to documenting/remaking them.
