Sergeant Ludlow “Supper” Sparrow’s off-site bungalow is nestled in the far east clearing of Summertime Forest.
This wire, foil, and clay birdhouse was created for the WeMake Celebrates “Put a Bird In It” auction. Along with over 70 other birdhouses, Sgt. Sparrow’s house will be donated to benefit arts and music education. More information about the event here:wemakepdx.com/wemake-celebrates.html.
The painting illustrates the following lines from part IV of Tennyson’s ‘The Lady of Shalott’:
And down the river’s dim expanse Like some bold seer in a trance, Seeing all his own mischance - With glassy countenance Did she look to Camelot. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain, and down she lay; The broad stream bore her far away, The Lady of Shalott.
