The Great Wave

Jane Perkinsfavorite artist of ours – has a new completed work! Here it is reblogged from her website:

Sometimes I struggle over a work and it takes weeks to finish (The Woman in Gold). Sometimes work goes together like a dream – as in the just-completed The Great Wave, after Hokusai,  based on a famous woodcut by the Japanese artist. The whalers in the boats have been replaced with little heads and some alien-like dolls in the foremost boat. At the heart of the wave is a 2-headed sea monster – great fun to make!

This piece and the Sunflowers from Amsterdam  are now in the Red Propeller Gallery, Kingsbridge.
