is an acrylic on illustration board. I painted at first, just
the birds on a generic branch. The first time I showed it I began
thinking I should do more with the image. Wouldn’t you know
someone wanted to buy it. This is back when money was tight and
it took some real intestinal fortitude to turn down a fair offer.
In the end it was the right decision. We as artists need to follow
our heart and better paintings are the usual result.
