Where are you now?

During an ‘Open Studios’ visit I could not help but come home with this oil.
It is called, ‘Where are you now?’, painted by Clothilde Vergnes.


About Harry Nicholson

I'm an enameller who works with a kiln, fusing pictures in glass onto copper. I write a few poems and short stories. There is an eBook anthology of them, 'Green Linnet' on Amazon. Also a novel, 'Tom Fleck', set in the North of England of 1513 - the year of Flodden. A sequel to 'Tom Fleck' is 'The Black Caravel' published in 2016. My anthology of poems came out in 2015: 'Wandering About.' I've a blog of poems, stories and art at: https://1513fusion.wordpress.com/

    I also love the painting and thought it was a spiral, which is a powerful symbol of life for me. As we spiral into the awakening, an amazing and unique transformation of mankind is occuring. I, too, think your painting would be lovely in enamals. Hugs, pat

    Primal indeed. Pristine, as well, and fluid. The artist and media in perfect tune, the act of painting a primative, instinctual dance.

  3. It sure is a beautiful painting, Harry. It brings to mind images of the ‘tunnel’ people who have had near death experiences describe travelling down.

    This would make a great prompt. The more one looks at it, the more there is to see.

    That is beautiful! I love the depth of colour.

    It gave me a shiver down my spine when I first saw it, as it looked very much like something I painted quite a few years ago

    How big is it? I have no idea of scale.

    • That might be significant, Susannah; the image affects me in a deep way – perhaps it has archetypal properties.
      Size is 16×16 inches.

        It really has a presence. I showed it to Joe today and he said ‘”surely that is your painting!’ ….Strange! I suspect that the artist and myself must have tapped into the same place.

        I’ve been thinking about this. It seems to have struck a chord with me, especially as I am thinking of beginning to paint again. (I actually got my paints and a blank canvas out today but didn’t begin.)

        I was wondering if I had a photo of the painting that I did, so I could show it to you, then when I thought back I realised that it was one of, if not THE first painting I did of that type. ( Larger and abstract.) So had special significance for me.

    I thought it was before I read the blurb.

    This could be one of your enamels!
