The Beachist

I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me. Anna Quindlen

Going through all my submission archives trying to catch up, I came across this one from Drew. Drew sent in one of the finest ever submissions Doggy Style Alsation Rampant, and in the excitement I missed this one Drew also snapped at The Blender Gallery Joondalup. Apparently by Merv Britten. Astounding. In case you are wondering, yes it does seem to be carrots on the beach.

    Can’t say that I know this beach; definitely not Swanbourne ;)
    Could be down Denmark way though; there are lots of vegans in the district who are naturistically inclined.
    After all, “You are what you eat.” !!

    Is it too much to hope it might be a Rottnest scene?

    This from the Sun City News: “The best way to describe Merv’s artworks is humour and other emotions in real and imaginary landscapes. Landscapes that will make you smile, yet they are not cartoons. Many will stir your imagination.”

    This is quite endearing though I think that, for the sake of verisimilitude, the boat should be a bit further back

    I’m mostly feeling ‘other emotions’ about this one although I’ll grant it’s quite a lot more endearing than Still Life With Poised Alsation and Pussy.

    Is this a landscape? Technically, are there usually mutated carrots with sunglasses on in a landscape? Even an imaginary one…

    I want the drugs he’s on.

    If those are naked carrot children there’s going to be trouble…

    It’s ok BT they don’t have crotches. Only the of-age carrots do.
