I'm not completely happy with this piece, even though I've worked a lot on it! The bird is an image transfer, further enhanced with tissue paper collage and drawing. At one point, the branch the bird is sitting on was a prominent part of the design. Nevertheless, I wasn't happy with how it looked and decided to add some collaged inkjet photo transfers of branches for some more texture and interest. I painted over the transfers which created a beautiful, transparent leafy effect. The beautiful quote is from T.S. Eliot.
