Little Wing is one of Catriona’s most popular paintings. This iconic image is reproduced on cards by Art Cards Cornwall and is also available as a signed, limited edition giclee print.
This beautiful, enigmatic painting has inspired writers and musicians alike. It features on the cover of the album ‘Ordinary Day by the British singer/songwriter Stella Homewood.
The writer Caroline Coxonwrote the following poem inspired by Little Wing.
Little Wing – by Caroline Coxon
Dressed chestnut for autumn
Floats in the air, between stillness and motion
Swept sideways, hair, nose, and shoulders
Insubstantial and substantial, both.
Dream of inception,
Dream of annihilation
Vicious and comforting
Brooding black, pretty pastel-winged,
Thought of aggression
Thought of protection
Want for nothing.
