Work Overview

Acrylic on canvas.
These words are beautiful to me. “Into the Light of the Dark Black Night”. A blackbird flies just above the horizon in the piece if you look closely.
When I was a little boy, I would go for walks across the fields in Scotland and delight in collecting black feathers. They seemed so black and perfectly designed in their beauty. I suppose that it why this song stirs past emotions and memories for me.
