An excerpt from one of my favorite authors, John Donne, and his poem about the fleeting but electrified nature of life. Interpreted in watercolor of indigo, lunar blue and Payne's grey and calligraphy.
The lines start out:
"Little think'st thou, poor flower,
Whom I have watched six or seven days,
And seen thy birth, and seen what every hour
Gave to thy growth, thee to this height to raise,
And now dost laugh and triumph on this bough,
Little think'st thou
That is will freeze anon, and that I shall
Tomorrow find thee fall'n or not at all."
A giclee print copy of the poem excerpt painted, hand-penned, professionally reproduction printed in lightfast ink on heavy off-white Somerset Velvet paper, dated and signed by Jocelyn Boblink, ready for the frame of your choice. (The original has sold.) Paper surface area is 14x14" and the image area is approximately 10.25x10.25". We'll ship it rolled in a super-strong triangular tube for best protection.
Different variations of my excerpts from other poems have been gifted to schools, retiring English department teachers, tough tenured professors, etc.
