With beaded bubbles winking at the brim – Original

Valerie Khoo Beaded Bubbles

With beaded bubbles winking at the brim’ is inspired by ‘Ode to a Grecian Urn’ by Keats. This is the second piece in the Drunken Apostrophes series. Acrylic on wood panel. 30cm x 30 cm.

Here is the verse it’s from:

O for a draught of vintage! that hath been
Cool’d a long age in the deep-delvèd earth,
Tasting of Flora and the country-green,
Dance, and Provençal song, and sunburnt mirth!
O for a beaker full of the warm South!
Full of the true, the blushful Hippocrene,
With beaded bubbles winking at the brim,
And purple-stainèd mouth;
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen,
And with thee fade away into the forest dim:

What is the Drunken Apostrophes series?
Drunken Apostrophes is a spinoff from my main Flying Apostrophes series.

What’s the difference?

Well. think of Flying Apostrophes as Dallas and Drunken Apostrophes as Knot’s Landing. If you’re too young to relate to that reference, then it’s like the difference between The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

In terms of price point, Flying Apostrophes is like Georgio Armani and Drunken Apostrophes is Emporio Amani. In essence, it’s the diffusion label.

Why is it a lower price point?
Because the Drunken Apostrophes series are all petite pieces, much smaller than the artworks in the other series. And, there are a lot fewer apostrophes so it doesn’t take weeks (sometimes months) to create like the other ones.

Now that I’ve overexplained myself, I hope you enjoy this series!
