Whimsy Birds

Today I did not feel like going back to the beans. So this is what I did instead:
You could ask what it's about, but I could not tell you. I probably had one of the best books ever in my head, The Ice-Cream Cone Coot and Other Rare Birds, by Arnold Lobel, and some other random art I have seen recently. But it physically came about because I wanted to do something strange and creative, not my normal realistic stuff. So, I did a random wash of light watercolors on this paper, let it dry, and then, with a fine-point sharpie drew in what I saw in the colors. It was fun. And I want to do more. My partner, Juneau, agreed that he would do a bunch of watercolor washes for me to make more random drawings on. This is exciting to me :)
