Peters Crazy Aunt as of 11 Jan 2012: and it was all shining


Edward G. Nilges, “State of ‘Peter’s Crazy Nuts Flibbertigibbet Knucklehead Aunt Dances on the Strand to the Music of Bach, and to the Sweet Zy-Deco Sounds of Clifton Chenier, the King of the Bayou’ as of 11 January 2012”, acrylic grisaille on canvas, 60 * 80 cm.

And then to awake, and the farm, like a wanderer white
With the dew, come back, the cock on his shoulder: it was all
Shining, it was Adam and maiden,
The sky gathered again
And the sun grew round that very day.
So it must have been after the birth of the simple light
In the first, spinning place, the spellbound horses walking warm
Out of the whinnying green stable
On to the fields of praise.

– Dylan Thomas, Fern Hill

Grisaille is just about done. Calm sea so I don’t have to worry about waves, one leg slightly larger than the other, a bit more pentimenti (corrections) may be in order. Sunshine Tian’s school crest and Hello Kitty need enhancement. A spray of absolute Flowers between her legs may tie the flowers on her left and right together nicely.

It is said that before Chloris’ apotheosis, the world was black and white.

Chloris eram quae Flora vocor – Ovid Fasti V
