Quarantine Wine

written by: Robyn MacKinnon



I am attending

our last day of quarantine

compliment for wine



Illustration description: this piece is largely composed of cutouts from a copy of The Curated Guide (by Curated Halifax). The background is shadowy and red tinged, reminiscent of wine, created with water-based marker and water. The words of the haiku float through the tableau, over a display of wine bottles, glasses, and settings populating the lower edge of the image. Central to the image is a hand drawn figure rendered in white mark making. They are stretched out horizontally on their back, one arm stretched out behind their head, the other hand holding a wine glass propped up on their chest. They look at the viewer lackadaisically, their long hair flowing out behind their head toward the left of the image (based on a sketch from a life drawing session featuring the modeling talents of the lovely Lara Lewis).
