Artist's description:

"Sweet Baby James" - acrylic on cradled board, 12" x 12" x 1.5". Ready to hang.

This piece was inspired by the writer Karon Luddy , who recently posted the following Wendell Berry poem:

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

After reading this and feeling the call of the wood drake resting, I knew one had to find its way into a painting. But why the title, you might be wondering? There was something sweet about this bird, and he felt at bit James Taylor-ish to me, and the song popped into my head and attached itself to the painting. It was a perfect fit. :)
