I just wrote about a new work of art I finished earlier today. Titled Tiger Tiger Burning Bright, it was inspired by a poem by William Blake.
You can read the story here: http://www.artsnova.com/blog/2016/01/12/1083/
I just finished work on a new artwork titled Tiger Tiger Burning Bright. The inspiration for this rather colorful rendition of a tiger is a poem by English poet William Blake. I first read this poem in a college class on English literature and it remains a favorite of mine.
