Art Expectations 368 Biddy

Biddy Bides Her Time

Here’s another scratchy painting using horrible brushes. It’s really not my style, but I enjoyed doing these. The whole reason for doing this project was to try new media and styles. And to reread this great book! Very, very slowly… I’ve made a mockery of this 365 Day Art Project, doing a post a day  🙂

{Day 368 Page 394}  Apparently the debt collector men are not successful in taking Pip because he remains in his bed at the Temple, tossing and turning. He is still seeing Joe in his dreams. One day he gets the courage to ask, ‘Is it Joe?’ It is! Pip asks Joe to yell at him for being so ungrateful. Joe just lies down in bed with him, putting his arm around him. Pip’s parents died when he was young. His sister and Joe were married and together they raised him. Joe was always so kind to Pip. His sister, not so much. She never recovered from a bad attack (by Orlick) and died. Around this time, Pip was offered his Great Expectations and moved to London to become a gentleman. He soon forget (or tried to forget) Joe, Biddy and his childhood life. Joe tells Pip that he had received a letter about Pip’s illness. Biddy had said ‘Go to him without loss of time.’
