More birds keep appearing...

Gathering
(currently in process)
watercolor, graphite, acrylic, and colored pencil on paper
42" x 60"
This is a painting that I am working on for a show in April at the Mayo Street Arts in Portland, Maine: Dr. Goodweather's Dreaming Attic. Things keep showing up in the painting: eyes, birds, cages, bones, hearts, plants, eggs and a large ghost bird.  Appropriate, I suppose as it named itself "Gathering."  I had little to do with who is showing up here.  I am just the conduit.  I am just the painter.  I am the dreamer.  

I just hope they will all stay long enough for the show in April.
