'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...

Thank you so much Shelley!

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! (-;
