Variation of a painting I did for a friend. Fun how much art
I discard, derail, and generally soothe/torture into something else.
One day it's a Hawaiian bird, the next week it's a hazy view
of the bay.
With a black head mask and a tropical water blue on its wings and tail,
Azure-Winged Magpie is a striking bird. I wish I can see one, and I read
that they're common in their indigenous homes---Pacific Rim to Mongolia
and the Iberian Peninsula (!).
