I Saw 3 Ships
I Saw 3 Ships

The inspiration for this painting came from an old nursery rhyme, called Three Ships. The last two verses go like this:

Three pretty girls were in them then,
In them then, in them then.
Three pretty girls were in them then,
On New-Year's day in the morning.

And one could whistle, and one could sing,
And one could play the violin,
Such joy there was at my wedding,
On New-Year's day in the morning.

The girls have become angels, and the ships sails are wings. They are sailing in a sea of dandelions, hence the dandelion seeds and the sun is a huge dandelion.
