Detail Shots

Given popular demand - one comment - here are some close-up images of these paintings I did a little while back:

Bonus points if you can name the poem that was used for those text fragments.


  1. I <3 stapled birds - lovely contrast between medium and image/feeling!

    The poem is definitely some Larkin, but I can't quite place which one. I'm sure it has to do with aging and being alienated though...okay, that's just every poem of his except the Mower.

  2. Thanks!

    Larkin indeed. It is "Sad Steps", and yes, there is of course aging and being alienated:

    "a reminder of the strength and pain
    Of being young; that it can't come again,
    But is for others undiminished somewhere."

  3. At first i read the title of this post as "Devil Shots". I've never thought you would consider painting the devil, but if one comment on your blog can change your mind, let it be so!
