I am starting to do my weird and wonderful pieces again. For each new image I want to do short poems or stories. I would really love to illustrate some kids stories I write soon. Doing poems or short stories will get me back into my writing interest again. I want to be able to tell my little ones some bedtime stories with pictures just from mummy. Nite nite
This piece is part of my continuous experimentation with colour. Green with yellow accents infused within.
I’d say I am always looking for unusual friendships for my characters. They tend to be lonely individuals who don’t seem to have close friends they can talk to. Therefore they have these quaint or dangerous animals sometimes who they feel free to share their fears and ideas with.
This particular friend has a crown so is of royal standing. I don’t see him just listening but he will have a lot t o say too.
The crowned owl is a prince amongst birds,
Watch him fly and believe all that you have heard,
proud but loyal and a straight talker,
He hates a quarrel,
He Loves completely and rules without timidity…
Verse by yours truly…Beatrice Ajayi
I have been inspired to write short lines of poetry recently inspired by different things. Below is one inspired by art work I saw called ‘A Cold Seat’
I have walked afar and rest is needed,
A cold seat i find no warmth required,
So I sit and sit and the cold sips in,
Alas stand I must,
The cold sit isnt were my rest is found,
But standing again reminds me of the pain,
For I have walked afar and rest is needed,
A cold seat I have found is rest for a moment,
