So happy that these three pieces sold today 🙂
My massive 50% off sale is still going on in my Etsy shop (hence all the sales)! Free worldwide shipping included.
Here’s a new postcard drawing. It’s part of an 8-piece poetry series, the whole of which will be added to the site soon. I really enjoyed creating the little cuddle creatures. This piece and the others in the series will be added to my Etsy shop soon.
I use chance methods to create all of my poems and drawings. Always interested in hearing from others who do the same! Also, if you’re a writer or artist and want to share your work on the site, please do get in touch 🙂 ExaminingTheOdd@gmail.com
Snow In Europe – Poem by David Gascoyne
Out of their slumber Europeans spun
Dense dreams: appeasements, miracle, glimpsed flash
Of a new golden era; but could not restrain
The vertical white weight that fell last night
And made their continent a blank.
Hush, says the sameness of the snow
The Ural and Jura now rejoin
The furthest Arctic’s desolation. All is one;
Sheer monotone: plain, mountain; country, town:
Contours and boundaries no longer show.
The warring flags hang colourless a while;
Now midnight’s icy zero feigns a truce
Between the signs and seasons, and fades out
All shots and cries. But when the great thaw comes,
How red shall be the melting snow, how loud the drums!
David Gascoyne also translated work by French surrealist poets.
Here’s a recent drawing that now lives in this amazing outsider art collection. I use chance methods to create all of my drawings, paintings and collages.
If you like my work, you can find me on FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram as jaysnellingart. I’d love to hear from other artists and writers! I’d also love to share more of other people’s work on the blog, so please get in touch if you’re interested.
I finished a new drawing this week. I decided to use oil pastel for this one, something I haven’t played with for many years.
So excited that this piece sold yesterday! More original pieces from this series are for sale on my ebay page.
Very happy that I sold these pieces today 🙂 Please visit my Etsy shop for currently available pieces.
