The Great Sphinx of Inchicore by mooreartist The Great Sphinx of Inchicore by mooreartist
The mythical Sphinx is associated with dynamic and spectacular events and settings. This one belongs to a less than salubrious suburb of Dublin. It is a guardian of the dreams of the ordinary people of that place. Acrylic on paper

I don't like green much but there's something fascinating in this piece that makes me love it.

Thanks Cybergranny. The colour I used is called Green Gold. It has a real resonance. I am glad it did it's job and intrigued you. John x

Thanks Cliff. The only piece that's been even slightly successful at the moment. Hope you like the title. I was nearly going to call it "The Great Sphinx of Kimmage" but your ego might have gone off the Richter scale. Catch up soon.
