Terri Brown-Davidson as the Corpse Bride (2008)

This painting is actually a homage to two talented artists: the director, Tim Burton, and the writer, Terri Brown-Davidson. When I saw Terri's photo, it reminded me somehow of Burton's "Corpse Bride." It a peculiar association, but it worked for me. The blackbirds in the background are reminiscent of Walter Anderson's work. He was a brilliant eccentric, who painted on the Southern Mississippi coast.

Hello David! How's things?? This is an extraordinary painting! I love the symbolism of the black birds. They remind me of the crows and rooks that fly around our chimneys on cold days and also of the blackbirds that sing their hearts out in the old apple trees in our little garden. I like the laurel wreath, symbol of honour and victory and the maiden clutching the quilled pen. Beautiful work!
