heavy boots

Here are a few new journals fresh out of the brush.

A year ago I started a project with the idea of birds. It's become a frustration. The concepts are great, however, I'm having a terrible time visualizing and creating images from that concept. Below is one of the little birds created. The idea is that the bird embodies the characteristics of flight and song, characteristics I exemplify. Also the bird is a messenger, literally and abstractly, from person to person or as a representation of the spirit. Again, the inability to visualize is driving me crazy. I sat down today and tried to work some birds into the watercolors, but unsuccessfully. The birds are cute, but I can't seem to take it much further.
