About artist/note:

This self portrait was inspired by the Thomas Hardy poem, "The Oxen,"
If someone said on Christmas Eve,
'Come; see the oxen kneel

'In the lonely barton yonder coomb
Our childhood used to know,'
I should go with him in the gloom,
Hoping it might be so.

-Mira Godard Gallery correspondance, October 1995
