Artist's description:

"Eye of the Blackbird" - mixed media on 300 lb watercolor paper, 22" x 30". Ready to frame.

Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird
from "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" by Wallace Stevens.

This piece began as scribbles - loosely inspired by Dali with amorphous floating blobs. Twenty layers later, the bird appeared. And then a link to the poem, referencing the twenty snowy mountains. I like to think the universe had a hand in creating this one. Crow is a messenger of foretelling. It is perfect for this day.
