Keeping the World Straight
The day before yesterday, I was in the summerhouse reading a book of short stories by Stephen King. "Just before Sunset"
One of the stories inspired me to paint this picture. It told of a man who had seen some standing stones in a field . Upon closer inspection he saw faces in the stone and when he touched them, he heard voices. In this place the fabric between our universe and another was thin .. and as long as there were eight stones in the field.. it kept the world straight and free from monsters. Sometimes, though, the eighth stone disappeared.
Now that I've painted the scene, it can't disappear - and so the world is kept straight. I almost feel like Superman :lol:
I think I'll pop this in my permanent gallery Pat Elliott Paintings ... so we can all sleep at night :)
