Dirge Print by Corviid Dirge Print 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.

Appr 15" x 19". Watercolor, color pencil & ink on watercolor paper.

This is available as a print: The frame pictured below 
is from Ikea. I have tried to make a size availability as close to the original size as possible in order to allow a print to fit in this frame (select 16"x20" option for this)
***however, it will still differ from the original size, and some cropping or necessary matting of the image will occur.***

It is also available with black background:

There are also some smaller sizes available that can be matted to fit into this frame or a smaller oval frame.

This is just absolutely stunning... completely and utterly, ethereally gorgeous!  You have entwined the beauty of art and nature within the symbolism of the egg shape - the wonderment and embodiment of life.  Artistically breathtaking...  The dimensional qualities are just endless...  and I could go on... as does speak your creation!

Wow, thank you so much! This is actually an older piece, I just finally got a high resolution scan of it, so I've uploaded it here and it's now being submitted to my print shop.
