22" x 15", watercolour, 2016
That's my friend and often-used model, Ashley, once again –this time apparently experiencing some kind of feverish delirium. Taking into account a couple of miscounts and do-overs (or whatever) this very well may be my fortieth painting featuring Ashley.
This a re-use of reference previously used for Pure as a Lover's Desire, Evil as a Murderer's Dream...which is, admittedly, third-season-Star-Trek-level of too long a title.
I used gesso for the wobbly circles and dots.
The title is borrowed from a line in Michael Penn's song Strange Season. I've borrowed from him before for these paintings (at least!): Virtuous or Virtual?, Close, Figment, and Wall.
