Bombers i

Here’s the sketch for the next big painting. Bombers is the name of an obscure David Bowie song I happened to listen to this morning that seems entirely appropriate as a title for this piece. Lyrics are here if you would like to read them. The figure in the centre is an old man, sitting in the white sand – he’s the hermit, with lamp and bowl before him. His staff rests upon his shoulder, and he is flanked by two standing stones, one holed.

I think the setting is in Death Valley, where the ancient white lake bed emerges from the sand dunes.
