VEHICLE OF TRANSFORMATION, 24” x 36”, acrylic on masonite panel-

“Vehicle of transformation” is a painting that presents an old wooden pea green boat floating in several skies: the night sky seen from a plane window, the Glastonbury Tor seen from the Henry VIII ruined monastery, and the Horse Head Nebula in our own galaxy. A boat is a symbol of transformation. It carries one from place to place as Charon carries the dead to the isle of oblivion. The zodiac is a form of divination, foretelling the future. The painting also contains a pun, if you can find it.
