Anthony Burgess


I used textural lines, cross hatching and scribbling with crow quill and colored inks over watercolor to represent what I feel was in the mind of Anthony Burgess... when he wrote the chilling book ... " A Clockwork Orange"




... I hope it feels like emotional turmoil.... surfacing...

Emotional turmol... yes I recognize that look. I love ink work over the watercolor.
I had this same look on my face after my morning preschool class with 15 four year olds! But I survived another day. I checked out your son's and husband's blogs... what a talented family you have. You must be very proud!
