Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah! do not, when my heart hath 'scaped this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquered woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purposed overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite,
But in the onset come: so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune's might;
   And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
   Compared with loss of thee, will not seem so.

William Shakespeare. Sonnet 90. #sonnetsincolour

"Window", 20"x30". Last night, I had a fleeting -- but overwhelming -- sensation of futility, meaningless of the whole existence. These sensations have an unpleasant tendency to present themselves as "objective truth" -- which is, if you think about it -- as meaningless as taking joyful sensations as a window to the "objective truth". Anyway, I took this sensation as a sign that I've gone way too long without painting from life -- hence this painting. In many ways, a companion piece to the London painting I've been working on this week... Home, sweet home.

A special service of CircleCount.com is the following button.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly on a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
