• Dawn Chorus

    Graphic by Ey@el

    Original en français

    In Germanic mythology, Lorelei is a water spirit similar to the Greek sirens or mermaids. Most of all, she's a symbol of passionate love in literature: the love of a woman, betrayed by her sweetheart, who falls to her death while thinking she saw her man's boat on the Rhine. I created this picture using Christa Geinitz's "Love is you and me" tutorial (her site is no longer online), probably inspired by various legends and the deep feeling of sadness I was in at the time, that is several years ago. Not much to do with the original Lorelei from the legends, however this is the name that came to mind when I did it. Above all, today is International Dawn Chorus Day, held on the first Sunday in May, where the public are encouraged to rise early to listen to bird song.

    Enjoy the show and happy May Day to all of you!
