Illustration Friday - Poem

>> Friday, July 20, 2007

I spent all last week away from home - and the computer with Illustrator on it - so I had to skip a week of Illustration Friday. Now I'm back and I'm jumping right in before my week gets away from me. The theme this week is Poem. I decided right away to find a poem about a color and create a pattern using that color - so here it is.

I searched Poetry Archives using lots of different colors as key words. I decided on Fragmentary Blue by Robert Frost because the focus was on the color itself - the emotional response we can have to a color and the way we can hunger for a color.

Fragmentary Blue
by Robert Lee Frost

Why make so much of fragmentary blue
In here and there a bird, or butterfly,
Or flower, or wearing-stone, or open eye,
When heaven presents in sheets the solid hue?

Since earth is earth, perhaps, not heaven (as yet)--
Though some savants make earth include the sky;
And blue so far above us comes so high,
It only gives our wish for blue a whet.

I like the pattern, it reminds me of summer in the shade and lavender and soft things.

Kind regards, oVan.
