summer

This 1959 GMC 9380 reposes in a field in the ghost town of Adanac, Saskatchewan.

 

The colours and the lines of the wild grass and plants remind me a bit of the work of later life Louise Wain - a habitual artist of anthropomorphized cats. As the artist's battle with schizophrenia deepened, so too increased the frenzy of the lines of his art.

 

I thought to name this 'Schizophrenia' or perhaps 'Wain's World' - but Summer seems representative too. Summer - a peak - an unfettered growth and wildness that may bury its sleeping subjects in the stuff of Life.

 

Hit 'L' on your keyboard - and dream of Summer.
