pushing up the daisys

original painted on canvas
Painting inspired by ‘The Waste Land’ by T.s.Eliot.

Interpretation 1
The Burial of the Dead

“That corpse you planted last year in your garden, “Has it begun to sprout ? Will it bloom this year? “Or has the sudden frost disturbed its bed?

Interpretation 2
My interpretation

The corpse represents the passing of life, and the frost (stars) human atoms, Dispersing and creating new life, In the plants and trees.

About the artist

lucy dray

Hi! My name is Lucy, I am a self taught artist. I have always had a suppressed desire to paint. But due to home and work commitments, I only produced a dozen or so pictures in 45 years. Then health problems forced me to leave my job in clothing production. I attended a art workshop and meet an artist who's kind words of encouragement set me back on the creative path. I now find time to paint.
