Messager in the Night
Messenger in the night, 2012, Acrylic on watercolour paper In the still of night, The screeches of the Ruru ring out, Across valleys, through deep forest and over rivers, The icy atmosphere of a night full of terror seeps in, The Ruru flees in silent flight, Taking messengers through the forest to the light of dawn.
The thing I love about this painting is the attitude that the morepork has. In the gallery where this painting hangs people are instantly drawn to it.
Acrylic on watercolour paper 80cm by 60cm framed in white frame with floating mount.
