Birds - In Progress
 
Initially the piece was to compositionally end with one 22" x 30" piece of paper. One figure with a birds nest in her hair.  However something did not sit right with me. Though I quite like the pose and the mood of the composition, I wanted a greater conflict within the piece and to create a sense of wonder and mystery for the viewer. It is this wonderment, discovery and curiosity that keeps me creating, painting and drawing day in and day out. With these thoughts in mind I came up with the idea of adding more birds. The Working title is "Birds".
 
Below is a digital collage of the composition and a small sketch.
