Magpie 192 November 3, 2013 Perception

Resurrection Reunion 2, 1945, Sir Stanley Spencer

It's a curious place
This little town
It's quite odd and really
Turned upside down
The artist paints Resurrection
While others think 
It just depends on one's perception

It is an odd place, and an odd painting! Just as you've said.

I am pleasantly surprised at how much I learn from Magpie challenges ... I didn't know this artist. You are right about perspective, Kathe.
