My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach out of cry
–Joni Mitchell, “Song to a Seagull”
For “draw a bird day” (the 8th of each month), I’ve been following the bird list in my childhood notebook for awhile. Seagull was next on the list. And there was Joni’s song, playing in my mind as well. So I had to do a painting in ink of one flying.
But I also love the kind of goofy dignity they have when they stand. So: a collage too.
