in the round

this is one of six round 12 inch canvases i'm doing right now. i wanted to do a single bird on an empty ground and see how it reacts, if it can stand on its own, how it functions on a round plane ..etc. this is in contrast to what i've been working on lately with exploring the interaction of botanicals and birds within the space and so forth. i find it interesting to go back and do a single bird composition like i've done before, yet this time i feel more confident and there's more of an intent in dealing with the overall simplicity. i've always wanted to do a large composition on a white background but haven't indulged until now. i guess these are a prelude to do just that.

Your birds are strong enough to stand on their own. They are phenomenal...the abstract seeds of color that fly off them are incredibly unique. Wonderful.
