Ragged Claws by phoebe-johnson Ragged Claws by phoebe-johnson
Shall I say, I have gone at dusk through narrow streets
And watched the smoke that rises from the pipes
Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows?…

I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.



This is my latest painting, based on the themes and imagery of T.S. Eliot. Specifically The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and Rhapsody on a Windy Night. Hope you like it. I think I\'m beginning to develop a style... I THINK! We\'ll see. I have more coming. Criticise me!

Also sorry if I haven\'t replied to things on here, I haven\'t been on deviantart for a while. Thanks for still watching and supporting though. I appreciate every comment and fave.

Acrylic paint on MDF craft board wood stuff.

His face and expression are so perfect, just how I imagined him to look.

One of my favorite lines from Eliot from way back, and the painting really captures the mood of the poem. Awesome.

This is so cool. I love characters with interesting faces, and I love this crab guy. Great realism on the face and expression — aside from the anemones, he looks like a (sad, broke-down) person you might see on the street.

I...I kind of want to give him a hug, actually. D:
