Song Drawing, 2015 9″x12″, mixed media on paper.

Skewball (trad.)

Skewball really was a racehorse, in eighteenth Century Ireland, and by all reports he was a marvel. Several broadsheet ballads were published extolling his virtues. The two that I am familiar with (recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary in the 1960s and by Harbour Lights in the 2010s) are completely different songs! The song drawing uses bits of both.

I can’t sing, so these “song drawings” were my personal interpretations, or “cover versions”, of favourite songs, ranging from pop and rock to blues and folk (and one classical piece).They are all nominally 9 x 12 inches, on high quality heavy weight paper, and will be shipped in a card backed envelope. Shipping to the UK Is inclusive. Please contact me for international shipping rates.
