VSW: Constance Lloyd

Constance Lloyd married Wilde man, and bore his children.
That was not all she was — feminist, adventurer, leader.
Well bred, well read, an author of children’s stories.
Deceptively strong, though she died at forty from a complication of surgery,
though many say she contracted a venereal disease from Oscar Wilde.

This is the statue that haunted me, especially the image I can’t show, which shows
the statue in Merrion Square looking back at Oscar Wilde’s statue over her shoulder.

I’ve had dreams about this statue.

Sorry, poor lighting turned the paper a warm cream color.

Grisaille, and the blue sky.

Not pox… just wanted more shadow/dimpling for a bronze statue!

She became a bit green on green on green…  but I still like her!

I always think I am not interested in history, but at 3am I watched this entire series of
shorts on Oscar Wilde, and read for another hour… I just have to be hooked!
