BIRD BOUQUET

Ga was my hero for catching the
bird---I had not the nerve to even
go up there to see what was messing
around the studio---of course the
bird was just as frightened as
I was. All's well that ends
well....

Well drawn. I love pieces that tell a story - or let the viewer create a new story without knowing what actually happened.

This is really a great moment. Do you create this from memory and imagination, or do you take a photo of the moment and work from that?

The bird is a Grackle---very common around here---appears at first to be black but is dotted and has irredescent areas.--winna

Yikes! I hate it when wildlife gets inside. Looks like this turned out well for everyone in the end. Love your style, and the perspective in this drawing.
