still-sound 10. Bird Vessels

I took photos of the birds I spotted in trees last winter.  When the trees are bare, the birds are easier to spot.

I've been drawing birds based on photos since 2005, the year I had a very significant, surreal visit from a lark.

I painted the lids of these porcelain vessels with several layers of gesso then drew a bird on a branch as it appears in one of the photos.  One vessel contains incense sticks and the other one is currently empty.
