THE PERNOD DRINKER
oil on canvas, 18 X 26 inches
The busy bar, full of light and sound, and diminishing connections to reality. The Pernod Drinker faces the viewer, hand filled with the licorice yellow, both getting pleasantly cloudy. She’s hair-twirling, maybe not so sure about the thinking she’s thinking but it will lead to some place untried. HERE I AM, she says. What? she says. Are you talking to me?
I have a different take than the French Impressionists, but this is Pernod, less lethal than Cousin Absinthe, less likely to lead down dark twisting pathways. Only, maybe, a morning hangover.
A couple embrace in the upper left corner, the feet of two talkers are seen through The Pernod Drinker’s crooked arm; a man at the bar holds a glass of ruby red. Headlights flash in the front window and bar signs shine, customers chat, the music levels rise. Yes, a good place. This is a good place.
