Description

An Acrylic Painting on a shaped Canvas occupying a space of approximately 26 X 26 inches, the second of a series of paintings I had wanted to call 'Pensées', which sounded attractively pretentious, but worried no-one would get the joke. On a larger reproduction you would see, etched into the bell, 'For You but Not for Me’ the second line of the song 'the Bells of Hell Go Ting-a-Ling-a-Ling'; As a child I watched a drunken Brendan Behan on BBC TV singing that song with great gusto to my appalled family, and an equally appalled 1950s Britain. Myself, I liked it.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
