SLEEPY HUMAN LANDSCAPE

(Coloured markers) by Ken Riddles.

There are all kinds of things happening in this imaginative landscape. There are no hidden narratives or messages in it. It is simply an exercise in imagination.

The foreground chap asleep has his arm resting above his head and his hand-fingers become the legs of two ladies. Where his inner elbow joint is at the bend of his arm, is a footbridge. Or it could be the arm of the chap to the right.

A lady in the background has covered breast-hills from which grow a few trees.

The sleepy chap to the left has a river running past his nostril, as though it was depicting an old Bisto advertisement (whiffing the aroma).

The clouds are asleep also. The chap to the right has a fence acting as a laurel crown. The two ladies are growing leaves from their arms.
