I found myself drawing a lot of swirly connected lines, and I really liked this shape. I enlarged it on watercolor paper and stared at it for a while before realizing that putting a bird on it was exactly what it needed. It sat finished on my easel for a few weeks because I didn’t have a title. Luckily I decided to listen to an ’80’s New Wave playlist and was inspired.
I took a few pictures of it while I was working on it, though I wish I’d taken one before I started painting.
