Dirge by Corviid Dirge by Corviid
Nature does not weep for us so much as we weep for ourselves.

The earth is indifferent to our passing. We erect monuments of iron and stone to stave off acceptance of our merely ephemeral presence here. In time everything is dissolved back from whence it came: chaos will encroach and even these monuments will crumble back into the ground. This is not good or bad, it just is.

Approximately 15" x 19". Mixed media on watercolor paper. Frame from Ikea.

You can now get this as a print! Click on the thumbnail and go to the 'Buy this Print' link on the right side of the screen:

I'm fairly certain this was a plain oak frame from Ikea, and then when you added your work to it, the frame was morphed into something dark and elegant. Your art transmogrifies the worldly frame to something of wonderland dreams.

It sure is from Ikea. Sometimes the frame gets compliments before the artwork, but I tell the art not to get jealous; that's just how it goes sometimes.

Thank you so much for such an eloquent compliment!

thank you. this was my first foray into actual color, and I've been obsessed with the sepia/parchment color range ever since.

yeah.. Ikea frame. So you could totally do an imposter of the original if you had a print. I'll work on that..
