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).

I am mostly a visual artist, but I like to create "found poetry", specifically daily haiku made from the statuses of my Facebook friends. It was my Mom who started this, and officially passed the responsibility onto me when she became too busy.
