‘A Sketch of Stone Roberts’ by Bruce Dale Wise The Society February 19, 2013 Art, Poetry A line that travels down the middle of the scene divides the picture’s plane in two: above, the vast and airy openess o’ th’ arching building, green on top, and filled with golden light and shadows cast between huge windows, flag, and architectured space, as if some grand, extr’ordinary thing has passed; below, a central clock shows twelve noon on its face, about which wind a multitude of people, things, and acts, so many are occurring in that place, oh, all the patterns ordinary living brings, hushed, talking, rushing, walking, pausing, gesturing, like skaters in a rink, all moving round in rings.
