Boat behind the window. Windows of Rye. 2019

Boat behind the window. 2019. J.Harms. Acrylic on paper. 48x63cm.

I recently (re)-visited Rye in Sussex. At first I thought about painting a couple streetscapes, Tudor style buildings and all, but for some reason my eye was more interested in the decorated windows of the old city. I usually let a couple months go by before revisiting my pictures, but with “B” day coming up, I feel a sense of foreboding in the air. This particular window with the boat, turns out to be more than that. A boat is a strong symbol of freedom, but this one is stuck behind a window…

The 6th Continent so far, 1 to 10/365

 

So far, the wanderer has entered the 6th Continent, walked by the towering peaks of Mount Calm, to the Stellar Bridge, where the walls of a mountain are carved to serve as shelters for the travellers. He has continued on his way  until he crossed another bridge over the Great Cloud Dam. Days and nights passed before he reached the  spectacular Light Catchers and the Ring House that serves as a power station. Using the Glass Tunnels over several miles he finally encountered the first camps overlooking the Great Narrow Mountain Pass. For days, the wanderer followed the paths down the mountainous land, when reaching the Window in the mountain, he knew he was near the Milky Lake reflecting the grey clouds and morning rise above its water. Keeping the lake on his left, he finally saw the Color Compass, and chose to rest before resuming his journey towards the South.
