Unicorn… (on the beach at Dungeness)

Commenced during the Lockdown of March 2020 (March 31) and completed on July 18 2020.

Mixed media painting on Fabriano hot-pressed paper. Framed in Oak.

I saw a unicorn today.

It first appeared in the far distance on the misty bay.

The dog and I stood to watch as the beast moved along the line of the outgoing tide towards us.

Sunlight shone rainbow droplets through a flying mane and flag end tail as its  thunderous hooves crashed through the gently rippling water.  As it came closer I was filled with fear; what I had thought to be a fine white horse was this wondrous creature, with its sharply pointed horn gleaming ike a sword carved from mother of pearl.

We stood stock still, frozen as the unicorn veered tumultuously towards us – passing so close that we sensed the heat from its gleaming flanks and felt the breeze in its wake.

With explosive force it mounted the shingle bank, blasting pebbles in a roaring avalanche as it clambered the steep wall of stones.

Then it was gone.

As we dazedly walked towards home and safety. I realised that it had spoken to me as it passed, burying its message in my mind.

 

I am powerful resourceful and emblematic.

I am the giver of life

The curer of disease

I am alone, live alone, travel alone…

I don’t exist.

…Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,
With tremulous cadence slow
and bring The eternal note of sadness in…

Peggy

This drawing was completed in 1982, when I travelled to California. I had been a fan of the Jazz singer Peggy Lee and came across an image of her on an old album cover. That album embodied my film-like existence in San Diego – Where I experienced the excitement and the underbelly of 1980’s Californian life.

Mixed Media Drawing – available unframed from the gallery browser.

Lucille

This drawing was competed in 1982 when I lived in San Diego. It is from an image that I discovered of Lucille Ball when she was young.

Having been a great fan of “I Love Lucy”as a child  – I couldn’t resist. And the image carries some of the disquiet and feelings of misplacement that I felt during these days.
