Donald's picture

The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments 
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
 That, if I then had waked after long sleep
Will make me sleep again

The Tempest scene3 act2 my composition began to develop...Caliban appears making his presence known to me through the death mask of William Blake.... then Prospero offers me another opportunity to appear in my shakespeare paintings... this is apropos for this play tells the story of an imagination.....

... next, Ariel arrives.....representing the cognizance of the dream world through the likeness of a young girl...she holds her innocence within a spirit orb....

.visual moments begin to multiply...... on a canvas, sounds are the accumulation of images....
