Artist's Description

Manipulated with textures by SkeletalMess

Blur-layers,lab-colour curve,selective sharpening,local contrast, dodge and burn.

Once the old plough was the master of the fields and the birds followed to feed of what he disturbed on the ground. Now he is slowly thinking into it. His grave awaits him and only birds still pay him respect, attending his funeral!

Inspired by!

I will go with my father a-ploughing

Author: Joseph Campbell (1881-1944)

I will go with my father a-ploughing
To the green field by the sea,
And the rooks and the crows and the seagulls
Will come flocking after me.
I will sing to the patient horses
With the lark in the white of the air,
And my father will sing the plough-song
That blesses the cleaving share.

I will go with my father a-sowing
To the red field by the sea,
And the rooks and the gulls and the starlings
Will come flocking after me.
I will sing to the striding sowers
With the finch on the greening sloe,
And my father will sing the seed-song
That only the wise men know.

I will go with my father a-reaping
To the brown field by the sea,
And the geese and the crows and the children
Will come flocking after me.
I will sing to the tan-faced reapers
With the wren in the heat of the sun,
And my father will sing the scythe song
That joys for the harvest done.
