Product Details

“Hope is the Hardest Love we Carry” is an original blue heron painting on a 24×24 in stretched canvas. It comes wired and ready to hang without a frame. The additional shipping price includes shipping within the U.S.A. I ship every painting out of Covington, LA.

Description

This painting (and many like it) was partly inspired by the following poem:

Hope and Love

by Jane Hirshfield

All winter

the blue heron

slept among the horses.

I do not know

the custom of herons,

do not know

if the solitary habit

is their way,

or if he listened for

some missing one–

not knowing even

that was what he did–

in the blowing

sounds in the dark.

I know that

hope is the hardest

love we carry.

He slept

with his long neck

folded, like a letter

put away.
