Under Water for “Water Water Everywhere” May 7, 2023

“Davy Jones Locker”

Mixed Media Assemblage

17″ X 21.5 “

by Judy Dykstra-Brown

Davy Jones‘ Locker is a metaphor for the bottom of the sea—the final
resting place for sailors who are the victims of shipwrecks and is used
 as a euphemism for drowning. Silver coins spilling from a pirate chest
seem to be doing these victims
of shipwreck at sea no good at all. Media

includes sand and shells collected from various Mexican beaches by the artist.




For Jez’s Water Water Everywhere prompt

            I am the same re/ reading. By the time I have time to do so, I have “used up” my vision. I listen to books, although recently I have two I have to read as they aren’t available in Audible.

              I know. There are always some things you have to read because you can’t get them on audio, but it’s a struggle. By the end of the day, my eyes are exhausted. I make visual mistake. Recently, a lot of them. I have to really focus to drive, but Garry has reached an age where he really doesn’t want to drive if he doesn’t have to and at least locally, there’s no reason why I can’t. It’s parking and backing up that are my worst problems. I was never good at them. Now, it’s really difficult and gauging distances in small areas is very tricky.
