Guava Sailing on a Midnight Sea
This was an evolving piece starting as a traditional approach to still life but it became a dreaming piece surrounded by dark seas and night clouds. Once it found its way to the sea it clearly needed a sail. There’s a corridor in the Vatican Museum that houses paintings of Medieval maps with ancient ships. This painting always reminds me of that hallway. I hope Crocodile Dundee appreciates that connection because he and his wife purchased the painting.
