Hidden Hearts Series
Man Catcher

Oil on canvas (approx. 60 x 48 inches)


When the wind blows from the west
Clouds of mascara black
Laden with anguish and fear
Whistle past the unsuspecting

Trawling in cloaked petticoat thrills of fragmented white
Dancing and crashing on rocks and sand
The hunt is on unleashing her needs
Denial that the victim is the predator

Illusions entangle her in her own obsessive net
Her ceaseless pursuit of the man that is justly hers
The chase takes over what she tries to hide

Her strength is misplaced and out of control
The catch is no longer the prize
The chase is her seducer.
