layered

In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost
Dreams – Fleetwood Mac


I took this shot during a walk back in Salamanca before returning to Africa.

Even at the time I took the shot, I was captivated by this painting. Had the artist been there I would indeed have taken it there and then.

But, it was not to be.

There were at least three paintings, each with a dreamlike quality, each stacked against each other, seeming to peel back a layer of the beautiful city which formed a backdrop to the canvases.

And, in preparing this image, I couldn’t resist adding another layer of my own.

  1. Fabulous image Andy. Your edit really adds to the textural sense of painting that often gets lost in photos (if that makes any sense). I found myself hearing Stevie Nicks’ voice by the end of the first line and that’s given the post a whole new layer too.

    1. Thank you Su, there was a time once – decades ago – that I listened to Stevie Nicks’ voice literally all night long, coming to terms with the collapse of my ‘first’ relationship, a part of the richly layered tapestry of my life!
