Artist's Description

Inspired by “The Leech-Gatherer” by William Wordsworth. The poem moved me, and I identified with it in some personal way. The painting is allegorical, and puts myself as the main character, searching through the mire, watched by women with misaligned breasts (perhaps my lovers, both real and imagined), and my mythical and seemingly demonic children (perhaps my art and writings). The painting is very dark.
