Artist's Description

“I Like to Sit Among the Trees”, an illustrated poem about Blinko, the WonderGnome, who needed a break now and then from his job as fortune-teller, mind-reader, and weight-guesser with the “World Famous Travelling Belgian Clock Circus” – please see www.belgianclockcircus.blogspot.com for further verbage on that phenomenon.

[" … it did him well to eat a lost truant now and then, and this was an excellent place to find them – wandering about in a thorn-licked daze, lost in the glens, way, way after porridge time and way past loosing the starch in their Buster Brown collar, they would come upon the unlikely sight of this large blue-lit jin squishing a thoroughly vanquished white truck, and while their eyes were still bugging, he would pounce, and that was that." – from Diedre’s Strange Adventure" by Edward Huse, 2008, all RR.]

This is a little piece of mild surrealism with the digital and with seashore image handling software on a mac (seashore hates saving png files but otherwise I like it plenty and of course the mac is hell on wheels) – having a lot to do with late afternoon walks in unfamilar woodland or rural surroundings at a time of dusk when the lights bring out different shapes and sounds take on new forms, this artwork is meant to be a tale of a sudden chill in the air one crisp Spring eve and this artwork is in it’s entirety © Copyright by Edward Huse, 2008, edhuse.com, all RR.
