Hot Off the Presses, acrylic, 12 x 12
Elizabeth W. Seaver
(Do I need to remind you all that the title refers to the old-fashioned communication form, the newspaper, which is printed on big, rolling presses?)
I really refer to the neighborhood grapevine--gossip which grows and spreads like the proverbial weeds. A tidbit must be passed on as quickly as possible, only savored later, usually in excruciating detail, over the garden fence, or perhaps with a cup of tea. And, the less that is known for fact, then the more must be speculated, thereby giving greater satisfaction to the gossipers.
In this case, the striped one can actually say that a little bird told her, and then endeavor not to be a snake in the grass!
Sorry. Couldn't resist.
