|The Patient Bird Watcher|
With a hushed silence
The sun crept in unnoticed.
The woman sat still.
This piece took a chunk of the afternoon to complete. The woman, a bird watcher, sits patiently waiting for what she knows will come today, the EuroAsian Crane. The light changes rapidly in the early morning hour and yet a cloud passes over before the brightness erupts.
I used a vintage photograph from the 1920s for this collage. The mediums used were watersoluable oil pastels, acrylic paint, pan pastels and of course PhotoShop.
