    Painted this based on a song that's lived in my head rent-free for years

    Forever obsessed with the imagery of The Goose and the Wren, but especially the bit about the kid with his kite where it says "But what can a bystander do / No more than watch the spidery lights take a hold of you?"

    Been meaning to paint this for a couple years now! Intending to make it glow soon :)
