The Blackbird of Belfast Lough Poem

Thank you @Seán Griffin for the beautiful poem, it capture the sculpture’s soul.

I hope to see soon this poem displayed @the Ormeau Library beside the sculpture!

 

I catch her often,
gathered within
her makeshift bower;
hollow figure in reverie,
unmindful of intrusion.
Features, unfinished,
undefined:
a splintered identity
still hold some
sense of self.
Her left hand, her only hand,
clasping an open book;
her face engaged
in reading;
held captive
by undiscovered words.
Her body, what’s left of it,
inclines forward
connecting with the tome
as she immerses
herself
into another state.
On her shoulder,
a silent blackbird slants,
echoing her gaze,
perusing the cryptic page
in search of meaning.
Faltering leaves now fall
about her
from a pendent elm;
languid autumnal
shower
of
flaming russet.
The mesmerising page,
unturned,
carries her to a place
where an
incomplete woman
is made
whole.

Painting Classes November-December 2018

The last few classes were an eclectic mix of dancers, cyclists, swimmers, horses and few other experiments! Below are some of the demonstrations painted in the classes.

We are off now for Christmas but I am hoping to see you in the New Year for more painting!
