IF... Wings

“Black birds storms appear in the air,
 a dark prophecy over Rouen sky”

Last October I was asked to contribute with an illustration to a limited edition of a book celebrating 40 years of career of  Italian singer and composer Alice. I immediately thought about illustrating the few verses above, taken  from a song by Italian musician Mino diMartino, included in Alice’s latest cd “Samsara”. The text of the song is an intimate, evocative portrait of Joan of Arc, strange topic enough for a pop music song! This is the genesis of this acrylic on paper (cm 30 x cm 25), which I titled “Il Cielo di Rouen” (Rouen Sky). Hope you like it!

  1. How beautiful! The soft face and the poor bird are so quiet and in the sky it's totally different, with birds flying on their wings.
