Large Artist Sketchbook 2020: Shadorma 277

You may know that in addition to my poetry I also do art, posted on my blog Claudia McGill and Her Art World. For the next several months I will be posting here a combined art/poetry project, Large Artist Sketchbook 2020.

I fill up sketchbooks with all kinds of art. Some contain images only and some of them I use the images as inspiration for poetry. In these books the image is on one page of the spread and the poetry on the other. This book is set up in this manner.

I’ll show you the image and then add the poem that goes with it. See what you think.

Shadorma 277

Lift my voice
above the chatter
of castmates
as we live
a lime green soap opera
swaying in midair

  1. The poem and art work make perfect companions for each other. Your birds are always joyful. I like the way the composition has that soft diagonal line where the bold green starts and ends and I also really like the way those red bird details pop against both the green and the black.
