Artist's description:

My second peice in this series celebrates the flock, the movement as one, and the mingling of airflow and vorteces created by the wonderful movements of these wonderful creatures.
Masters of the sky with incredible agility and speed they skim, dart and dive over the fields and hedgerows harvesting insects and bugs to grow their young and fatten themselves for their epic migration to Africa in the autumn.
Poetry in purest motion.

For me, the importance of this work is not in the portrait for the birds but expression of movement.

Offered unframed and unmounted this work will be shipped rolled in a robust cardboard tube for you to display in your style.

Swallows Ascending

Fly away swallows,
Fly away home,
Ascend the heights,
Ere to roam.

Swoop on wing and,
Soar on high,
Fly away swallows,
Summer's end is nigh.
