Watercolor portrait of George Orwell, inspired by his poem The Pagan (my favorite poem). Orwell is a huge inspiration to me and my work, from his ideals to his literature; he was a true visionary and genius. I tried to give him the purple and gold he desired...
Poem as follows:
by Eric Blair (George Orwell)
SO HERE are you, and here am I,
Where we may thank our gods to be;
Above the earth, beneath the sky,
Naked souls alive and free.
The autumn wind goes rustling by
And stirs the stubble at our feet;
Out of the west it whispering blows,
Stops to caress and onward goes,
Bringing its earthy odours sweet.
See with what pride the setting sun
Kinglike in gold and purple dies,
And like a robe of rainbow spun
Tinges the earth with shades divine.
That mystic light is in your eyes
And ever in your heart will shine.
