"Vanquished" by Emily Carr
Step 3 : Research. Yesterday’s highway log vignette reminded me of an Emily Carr painting but I couldn’t remember which one. It didn’t take long to find “Vanquished” which is one of my favourite Emily Carr paintings. Fallen and decaying ancient totems of a lost culture rhythmically populate a desolate beachhead. Big Jump – highway log = totem, highway overpass = mountain. (grass still equals grass). Me thinks this is a great concept for a painting. So, I start to paint.
