This creepy picture of two magpie skulls illustrates a line from the famous poem "One for Sorrow, Two for Joy..." A few years ago, I discovered two dead magpies in my chimney. I assume that one must have fallen in and the other followed it's mate. Magpies, crows and other corvids are very misunderstood, beautiful birds. I created this mixed media artwork by dying paper with coffee and then painting in coffee, drawing with graphite and different coloured pastels and printing with ink.
