Large Artist Sketchbook 2020: Haiku 812

You may know that in addition to my artwork I also write poetry (posted on my blog Claudia McGill Writes Poetry, Did You Know That?). For the next several months I will be posting here a combined art/poetry project, Large Artist Sketchbook 2020.

I fill up sketchbooks with all kinds of art. Some contain images only and some of them I use the images as inspiration for poetry. In these books the image is on one page of the spread and the poetry on the other. This book is set up in this manner.

I’ll show you the image and then add the poem that goes with it. See what you think.

Haiku 812

What is it you say
about keeping our secrets?
Yes, I can. I will.

    Thank you. It seemed that this picture continued to grow as I worked on it (not having any idea what I was going to make as I started off). I do like these birds a lot and the woman is also showing some mystery as to what she is up to. I do like a picture with questions asked and not answered.
