Week 24

When reading this poem I was very much attracted by the words "mist crow" and decided to try something different - I wanted to create something that was soft and "misty" . So I first painted my paper with a thin layer of silver ink and tried to draw on top of that. The original artwork is slightly shiny which makes it very difficult to photograph for the net!!!!!

 

Corvus Corvix

 

In German, he is a mist crow, his grey cape

like evenings when sky matches sea,

morning walks that shroud the fields

softened with seed, the hooded sweatshirt

worn thin when the man has scavenged

and gone, his black wings stalking the air

above the car park, his sharp twists

like the slow, dark river beyond.
