Creative Tuesday and Magpie Tales
Theme
Luck
Lucky
 

My great grandmother was born in Ireland and had a brother named Will Fitzgerald.
Here is my rendition of Lucky Uncle Will Fitz.
Yes I drew and painted this with Extra Fine Sharpies but enhanced it a little with my computer.

Magpie Tales #53


 


you can't escape

you thought you could get away
thought you could forget
did you think I would let you off that easy
you tormented me when you were eight
and you still torment me today
yes I have passed into the neither land
but I left reminders behind
why do you think you have all my china, glasses, antiques, accessories
i told her to give them to you 
i can still see you from up here
that time I hit you across the nose and threw salt in your eyes
was no accident
you drove me to it
you upset my comfortable life
you, your sister, brother and your mother
i told her not to marry him
now you are still paying

Dear Peggy J: Seems like Great Uncle Will Fitz really had it out for his progeny. What's up with that? Or maybe he was just to attached to "things" and should have taken them with him; the old codger!Love your artist rendering of the "better than thou" rogue! Time for a ghost whisperer?

Ocean Girl said...

Hello QMM, loved the sketch and the poetry. Loved the art on your blog cover too. You are an all-rounder;)

Tess Kincaid said...

A salty revenge. Love it.

Anvilcloud said...

There is a fiddling family called Fitzgerald somewhat near here. Either their record or group is called Everything Fitz -- maybe both.

Some obsessions never end, I guess!! Looking over my shoulder..brrr...

Mmm said...

Whoa, QMM, powerful poem there. What an interpretation of the photo.

As it is, love the story behind the CT drawing. TY for putting so much thought into it and being inspired.

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

The Fitzgeralds and Tobins came to Canada then down into the US. In Ireland they were tavern owners and that is what they did in New York. So left there and went to Maryland and then to Kentucky for farming. My grandmother Who's mom was a Fitzgerald, could tell a million stories on that bunch. When I read Angela's Ashes, I felt like I was there.

Southwest Arkie said...

Ah, payback...the ultimate revenge.

EVA said...

Great sketch! And quite the poem - it seems to suit the salt shaker well as that crystal looks rather sinister to me (anyone else see a skeletal face in it?)

Jingle said...
