The Road Is Lonesome
The Road Is Lonesome - yes it is. It seems there's nowhere much more lonesome than these massive intersections of commuters where I've been hanging out. I keep being drawn back to there and these perspectives from street level. So this is the start of the left hand side of a very big diptych which will be about 2.5 m in length.
I'm feeling pretty tearful today readers - a mixture of the torrential rain, the large amount of gangrenous homeless in the subway stations this morning, too many sad Marlena Shaw tracks on the ipod and the melancholy of my new piece.. Pure Sorrow.
