Soothsayer. Beware the ides of March.Caesar. What man is that?Brutus. A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
William Shakespeare
The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to March 15th. It became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar.
Today is March 15th, but it is also Art Tuesday at Elarbee Media, and we found a suitably "soothsayer" styled offering from our recent business visit to New Orleans.
This painting on board is one of two in the series. The second piece is retained by the artist in his personal collection. In spending time with him, he told me it had been "offered" for some time, but no one was interested in it.
Odd. It haunted us immediately, which is how it ought to be. We now have a new nickname for this painting in the office. "Ides".
