The Lover Compareth His State to a Shippe
in Perilous Storme Tossed on the Sea
The Lover Sheweth How He Is Forsaken of Such
as He Sometime Enjoyed
Ys Yt Possible
What shulde I saye
The Lover Complayneth the Unkindness of His Love
Wonderful images and titles! Anne Boleyn was responsible for so much in that time. What a force she must have been!
Thank you so much Narelle…it seemed standing alone the titles perhaps appear (to our eyes) somewhat saccharine so I wanted to frame them in such a way they ‘comported’ something of his experiences…I must learn more about Anne Boleyn!
Brilliant. Fascinating. Your work… your ideas… your knowledge. Thank you, Steven
Many (many) thanks Stephia…It’s a validation of the time and energy put into the posting to hear that these ideas and images resonate 7 connect with your artistry…my knowledge probably lies in rooting around and making connections…I guess roots are connected to something alive or once alive…
superb Steven, really…
Thank you John.
