Here’s a two years old painting of mine. For those not familiar with the poem in question, this illustrates Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, The Ancient Mariner".
The verse illustrated is this one:
*`God save thee, ancient Mariner !
From the fiends, that plague thee thus !—
Why look’st thou so ?’—With my cross-bow
I shot the ALBATROSS.
(S.T. COLERIDGE – 1798)*
Anyone interested in reading the entire poem may find it here
