MMM: If I were a colour, today I'd be...
... painted by a fish!
A different style this week. I haven't found any words from my old journals that really fit with this theme so I'm just playing - maybe about time too! Afterall the playful side of me is a real as the others....
In the first week this fish was attempting to paint pictures in the depths of my not-conscious self. This is a picture that the fish is currently at work on.
A variation of the Uffington white horse is at the top. It is one of the most interesting of Britain's white chalk figures and one of the oldest too. The link I've given mentions that it might have been a dragon rather than a horse. I prefer the suggestion that it was a hare... but I've no idea where I read that or whether there is any evidence for it...
The fish has used a painter's wooden figure but clearly has yet to get its proportions right.
