Shirley makes pictures I love of things I love, among them, flowers and birds. This is a perfect example of the best of iphonic art: the masterful capture of an instant combined with the disciplined and patient apping to bring forth the magic inherent in the image. Shirley’s work brings to mind a saying from the East, “The eye of the artist does more work than his hand.” In this case, her hand.
Except for the fish.
There’s only one song for this picture.
Twelve king fisher birds shall you have
Dive and swim in the ripples of your love.
Oh, I dreamed you were a Jewel
Sitting on a golden crown on my head, my head, my head.
Look at the tiny oceans in my hand
Waves of liquid colours touch the sand.
Oh, I dreamed you were a jewel
Sitting on golden crown on my head, my head, my head.
Twelve Kingfishers by Donovan
