This bird seems so pensive as if thinking of flying away, but not quite sure. I used an inkjet image transfer, then enhanced it with pencil and paint. I happened to find the "middle of nowhere text" in an old magazine ad and thought it fit perfectly with my theme of escape. An old musical score adds interesting visual texture, but also suggests the beauty of a bird's song, as well as music's powerful ability to transport us to another place and time. I'd made the butterfly stamp used in the top right corner awhile ago, and thought it would go nicely with my thoughtful bluebird.
