Margaret and Helen in the Milky Way

this is the strangest one of all. two women (although the one mostly hidden looks male to me. like a young boy) afloat in the galaxy in a magical bathtub. the most striking thing is the disparity in the the way they are feeling. the lovely blond is pushing herself up, looking directly into the light with a smile on her face while the second figure crouches in her shadow, looking fearful. looking directly at the viewer as if to say, 'i'm afraid', but remains huddled or trying to hide from the vast space they're flying in, which could be any unknown.

there seems to be primal relationship between these two, but its one of marked difference in personality. first off, the standing blond seems indifferent to the figure crouched near her groin, and the smaller gives off a panic that needs to believe there is only that tub in all the world to prevent free-falling in space. so i'm seeing head on acceptance with emotional detachment from one, vs cowering alarm and perhaps denial in the second.

a provocative piece, scott. and i love to study these.

Thanks again. I am amazed again and again at all you can pull out of a humble image.


You are too kind, dude. But I am glad to have a place to put all of this junk. And grateful for the feedback.

All the best-
