Joseph and the Flying Bouquet

Acrylic and sgrafitto on gessoed panel. 80 x 80 cm. 2014

Soldier Joseph is hurrying, carrying flowers to the Princess who he’s rescued from a curse of sleep. (Or perhaps she was just a lazy stay-a-bed, pretending.) Love has loaned wings to his heels, but he’s tripped and sent sunflowers and tulips flying through the air. The Princess, alas, is not to be trusted, and our hero will be led into peril by her. Oh dear. And he looks so happy, here.
