Going for Water

Acrylic on Glass Mirror
5/20/10

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.
