New Work - Suvo

"Magpie Committee",
Image size 11"x 22, Sumi-e Ink , 140 lb Strathmore Cotton Rag paper
Magpie on a bough
Tipped his head and said,
"Here in the mind, brother
Turquoise blue.
I wouldn't fool you.
Smell the breeze
It came through all the trees
No need to fear
What's ahead"

NOT an endorsement !

Photographer: C'mon let's get a photo of you two together!
Suvo: (Trying to get away) Nah, That's alright.
Mayor Boles: Yeah , let's get a photo for Old City Life !
As the photo was snapped and Suvo was trapped.
Suvo: You know that the artists are suing the city, don't you?
Mayor Boles: That's OK, I'm an attorney.
Suvo: Yes, but it wouldn't be you, it would be Kahn wouldn't it?*
