Latest Painting: "A Love Token"
Laura is currently working on "A Love Token". I asked Laura, "Where do the ideas come from?" Laura never finds it easy to put the paintings into words, but a little stream of conciousness followed, that was something like this... "Thoughts about Mermaids and Sailors, and myths about Sirens. Two worlds not able to meet, the love of the sailor for the Mermaid and the Mermaid for the sailor. Has she sunk him with her anchor? Or is the anchor something he made for her? A sailor sometimes made love tokens for his sweetheart whilst away on long voyages."
