Kingfishers Watch the Ripple Stream
The Kingfisher Watches the Ripple Stream.
Signed poster print A3 sized (including a white Boarder)
On 250gsm paper with a silk finish. Yum!
This is a 'painting' made using collage techniques from the words of the famous 'Northamptonshire peasant poet' John Clare. To make this artwork I printed the poem in a range of up-to-date and trendy colours and then cut, ripped, arranged, and glued the words into these inspired designs.
My inspiration comes from nature and the wonderful linocut printmaking that I admire. The words of the poem add a bit more magic to my imagination and allow you to see into the world of the poet and me - the artist!
I hope you love this design and would love to see how it looks on the wall of your home too!
The Fens by John Clare
Wandering by the river's edge,
I love to rustle through the sedge
And through the woods of reed to tear
Almost as high as bushes are.
Yet, turning quick with shudder chill,
As danger ever does from ill,
Fear's moment ague quakes the blood,
While plop the snake coils in the flood
And, hissing with a forked tongue,
Across the river winds along.
In coat of orange, green, and blue
Now on a willow branch I view,
Grey waving to the sunny gleam,
Kingfishers watch the ripple stream
For little fish that nimble bye
And in the gravel shallows lie.
By John Clare
