ouderdom
old age

Words of wisdom at Sunday Postcard Art and The written word at Mixed Media Monday.




ouderdom
ik oefen als een jonge vogel op de rand
van 't nest, dat ik verlaten moet
in kleine haperende vluchten
en sper mijn snavel.
~M.Vasalis
old age
i practice like a young bird on the edge
of the nest, that i have to leave
small hitching flights
and open my beak.
~M.Vasalis


Lots of acrylic paint and some iridiscent medium which appears grey on the photo. Image found on the internet ages ago. The photo is clickable if you want to take a closer look :)
