Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-07
The expression of movement in Four and Twenty by ~robrey create a fleeting sensation. A clever take on an old rhyme. ( Suggested by AzamRaharjo and Featured by oilsoaked )

"Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?" ;) Great painting and an amusing twist on the rhyme!

Be glad you followed the European Recipe, not the African version.

That said, they're remarable dry for being put in a pie. though the crust looks tasty.:P

is this before, or after cooking? or is it that they're in a tree, of all things??

The biggest question, of course being, WHAT'S COOKING THEM?!? and is it coming soon to a place near me???

I love the way that even though the girls are hurt (and backed into a pie) they're still determined to fight back. For all we know they are staring down death.

This is incredible. I love the anger and determination on their face. Like they're saying: "No, we will not go quietly." Beautiful. Simply Beautiful.

This is a fantastic image, very well done, pleasantly surrealistic and yet still has weight and depth to it, feels "real" and the expressions are amazing. Love it.

perhaps this is a mis-interpretation,but it seems like in the rhyme they are suppose to sing,but the photo is great because they are angry for being baked and not willing to do what they were intended to,you should treat things better before you expect them to be loyal,and the actual picture,spectacular.

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn't that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?

awesome take on the old nursery rhyme, i haven't thought about this is a long time.

I saw this among the Daily Deviations at the bottom of the page and it literally drew me to take a closer look at it and that's a good thing for any artist to have: to make them drawn in! :D Good Job!
