Gravity Loves to Win

22" x 15", watercolour and gold paint, 1998

The title is from a Wild Strawberries song called "32" from their Quiver album from '98.

I'm revisting previously-used photo ref for some new oil paintings and my reworking of this one is a little more literal...and my addition of a space helmet inadvertently seems to make that painting reference the film Gravity which won a bunch of awards. I assure you, there's no deliberate connection (not that there's anything wrong with that)...and, at the time I'm writing this, I still haven't even seen the movie. All the same, I won't be using this title for the new painting.
