– After Magritte –
“I call it ‘Ceci n’est pas une sheep’. It’s an homage to the great artist himself.”
“But I don’t understand. It clearly is a sheep. It’s not a representation, which I believe was Magritte’s point. There is a living, breathing and – oh God! -defecating sheep on the dining table!”
The silence yawned wide between us. I could tell she was terrified that she had called me on my explanation – admirably courageous of her. I suppressed a smile – it was much too soon. Exploring all of these different art forms, sharing them with the media, was doing wonders for my reputation.
“All I will say is that you are searching amongst the obvious. I see you are still learning about this world we call… Art.”
The look on her face as she scribbled down her notes – it will last me a long time. Until we meet again.

You have to love artistic interpretations don’t you Freya. And to end with the scribbling note taking is just wonderful. Plus I love the images you have created.Loved it.
Thank you! I dredged the recesses of my mind for the Magritte inspiration. My step-Dad has a Magritte book which I loved to flick through when I was a teenager.
Ha ha! Your imagination never ceases to baffle me. 🙂
The phrase came to me on the train home from work… I wanted a play on words, something humorous!
Hehe, we all have a different interpretation of art, great tale
Indeed we do! I’m glad you enjoyed my little tale.
Such cheeky characters!! I love the wry humor threaded throughout. You certainly know how to nail your characters’ “Voice.” Well done!!
Thank you! I have my moments….
