Going for Water

Acrylic on Glass Mirror

This piece was inspired by the poem "Going for Water" by Robert Frost. The last few lines of the poem really inspired it, phrased "like pearls, and now a silver blade."

It was really rather convenient the way I obtained this mirror and consequently, the idea. My sister threw a tantrum, and slammed our bedroom door shut, breaking the mirror. My parents would have thrown it away, but I saw the shape and thought immediately of that poem.
