I really dig this Single Whip Drawing by Irish artist, Susan Walsh. Its charcoal on paper. It is stark, it is simple. I love the abstract layout and composition.
If it weren’t for the title, I might not even notice the little whip in the bottom corner. Not sure. what the story is behind it, but it just adds to the intrigue.
I had never thought about whip birds before… but interesting fact: they are monogamous. Also, the male whip takes an active role in raising and rearing the young.
Susan is in the Saatchi gallery. She lives and works in Donegal, Ireland. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my link to purchase.
