I'm busy in the studio feeling inspired to create some new work, revisiting and updating my old blackbird theme.
Blackbirds formed an artist's book as part of my degree http://www.helendblackbird.co.uk/sketchbook.html
This piece is from Wallace Stevens Thirteen Ways Of looking At A Blackbird
Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird.
However, the inspiration for the blackbird theme is more closely related to The Three Blackbirds of Rhiannon, and Stevie Nicks' project, from the original Fleetwood Mac song Rhiannon.
I posted this on Facebook and was invited to this exhibition by artist and curator Rosalind Davis so I hope to make it down to Margate to see it, and maybe the finished work will be for this gallery :-)
