“I got me a hand that’s bitter sweet, But no regrets, I’ve known the garden…”

My father adapted the infamous Hieronymus Bosch work ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ – and rather than illuminate the history of mankind (as the original triptych is said to do), the Linares’ Garden reveals more of a family history.  It’s a piece I’ve always loved.

“Art historians and critics frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations.”  How fitting.  I love the chaotic mix-mash & DIY cut photos.  I used to wonder (and somewhat obsess) about what each family member’s placement meant to pop.

I think I got out easy – you can hardly find me (or does that mean the worst?)
