Visual Poetry

Our thanks go once again to Elaine Nash for leading us in a most excellent workshop last week.  Quoting Leonardo de Vinci –

‘“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt
and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen”

Elaine asked us to bring a poem along as inspiration for our painting.  After some initial head scratching, we all rose to the challenge and managed to find our favourites (although in the case of one member, she cheated and wrote her own!) and the resulting pictures are a testament to our varied tastes!

Here’s just a few of the pictures.  Can you guess which poems they represent?
