Artwork Description

This painting is a nod to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1798 poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". If you're wondering what's wrong with the bird, then go read the poem Wink The metaphor of having an albatross about one's neck is also a reference to having a heavy weight on your shoulders, extra psychological baggage that can seem like a curse - perhaps of your own making. Great excuse for a cool painting, too. Original acrylic painting by me, of course!
