Art Expectations 347 Beer on the Boat!


Jug O' Beer by Julie Flandorfer

{Day 347 Page 371} Provis continues to talk about freedom. They are all four on the boat cutting through the shipyards on the Thames River, getting the heck out of dodge (London). Provis tells of his life as Magwitch in the States. He could come and go as he pleased, working and getting rich. In London though, he’s seen as a criminal, an escaped convict. Pip tells him he will soon be free and safe again. If all goes well. Provis says that they can no more see through the next few hours as they can see to the bottom of the murky river. He claims he’s not despondent, just relaxed by the quietness of the flowing river and perhaps, he’s just getting old. After a bit, they pull ashore to get some “beer in the boat”. Very important. Provis starts to climb out with them. Pip suggests he’d be safest staying in the boat, Provis sits back down. Either he’s become too comfortable with his situation or he is getting old, forgetful.

Here is a nice big jug of beer for the boys! In the way of a small acrylic painting. Can’t wait to find out what happens to all of them!
