Tail of the Magpie II
Tail of the Magpie II
Acrylic, ink, collage

We lived in a small hamlet in France from December 1999-August 2000. One of the other small villages near us was called Queue d'Ageasse, the tail of the magpie. It must be a local name, because I have never found that word in any dictionaries. The magpies were everywhere and quite beautiful although, apparently, they were thieves of shiny things and other birds' eggs.
