==The Tongue Wags==

The Tongue Wags, acrylic & oil on linen, 20"x30" © 1995 (private collection)

The Tongue Wags, was inspired
by the I Ching, Hexagram 31.6:
"The influence shows itself in the jaws, cheeks, and tongue."

"The most superficial way of trying to influence others is through talk that has nothing real behind it. The influence produced by such mere tongue wagging must necessarily remain insignificant. Hence no indication is added regarding good or bad fortune."
[Wilhelm/Baynes]
