This series was inspired by an extremely painful ear infection that resulted from the European plague, which I contracted while traveling in Italy.  All three feature the semi-circular canals, which are located in the inner ear.  The underwater piece was the first one I did, seeing as that's exactly what my head felt like when I got back home!

The Entire Series

The First Piece, done in chalk pastel. (coral or sea monster? hmmmm)

Second Piece, done in acrylic and inspired by Ted Harrison.

Last Piece, done in watercolour.

Thanks for looking!

This takes me right back to hours spent perfecting drawings of the ear for Leaving Cert (final exams before university in Ireland) biology- mine never looked this good though!

I think you should live each day as if it is your last. Thats why I don't have any clean laundry, because, lets face it, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?

Amazing. Next time I'm sick, I hope it inspires me as much as this earache did for you.

Wow, these are amazing! I love the interesting shape of the ear canal, and how it transforms into something so different for each picture. I really love the flower. Wonderful! Grin
