~Archers Art Musings




Today. Rain.


Archers expression of the Elements, Delightful










His use of space reveals an advanced esthetic. Even his choice of Wine is Excellent.


A trainer perhaps?  those annoying waving arms and a lunge whip. He is being shat on- by a goose?!

Is he channeling Dali?









"The God Horse" -  Offering an apple and tossing salt.


A Bold painting of overwhelming significance.


...Do Horses have.... Shaman?


He is trying to communicate.








We look closer.


Deliberate marks and a sensitive moment defined precisely where balance has just been lost.


"Phaethon, he was lost; and, fixed in chills of horror, dropped the reins.

When these they felt upon their rising backs, the startled steeds sprang forthwith; and, unchecked, through atmospheres of regions unexplored, thence goaded by their unchecked violence, broke through the lawful bounds, and rushed upon the high fixed stars."


(Ovid, METMORHOSES BOOK 2 PHAETHON AND PHOEBUS)



Could he be studying?!



I must ask.









A mermaid? a reference to beloved Helios and Poseidon?

The careening Phaethon and unchecked chaos?


I ponder his work in the evening.  The fire warms me as I study this mystery.

Archers seemingly listless but more and more obvious deep daily contemplations become evident.


I wish I knew. I beg him. with apples, carrots, chicken sandwiches, snickers.

He is... so silent. It looks Greek.


He is an Artist.
