'Delftware' Tile - Hello Sailor


'Delftware' Tile - Hello Sailor

One of the 13 faux Delft tiles (actually acrylic on panel) I created last week especially for my Wunderkabinett solo exhibition at the week-end. The Show was in a Georgian period townhouse, which not untypically have blue & white Delftware tiles surrounding the hearths.

This inked matelot is a handsome chap. Franco-phone/phile Miles Kingston once said that the french navy took as its motto 'To the Water! Its the Hour!'. But of course, it was said in french...

I would have killed to get that faux tile, so just as well I wasn't there or we could have been squirting soda water on the rugs by now to lift the blood stains! (-;
