Parrot vs Quince by Loren Whiffin
Medium: oil, cotton thread on paper
Dimensions: 42 x 30cm
To the parrot upon seeking its prey
Chose the defenceless, unable to run away
The onslaught begins, piercing the skin
rotting and brown
But to those who can fly, the message is told
As the flightless descend, entitlement will end.
This mixed media still life is inspired by the harvest of my crop of quince before the onslaught of birds.
