Our grandson, William, made this abstract painting that I've had hanging in my art space. I look at it a lot, and lately I began to see a bird in his painting- the purple and orange wings and the branch-like swoosh at the bottom. Today I brought our bird to life!
I made a copy and played with it before tackling (and maybe ruining) the original. I added a little additional line to the purple wing, continued the red outline, and added birdie-essentials like legs, an eye and beak, and voila, our birdie appeared.
This isn't our first collaboration. Here we are making a shirt for the 4th of July.
And here he is, working on another masterpiece.
This fat budgie makes me smile every time I look at it!
