Birds of my dreams

Embarking on drawings last year… trying to remember what it was like to produce pictures that felt good.  Some birds happened…. and I like them.  I think both of them capture an idea of freedom – freedom to see the world as you want, freedom to fly in whatever situation you are in, freedom to take the best from everything…. some ideas I needed to engage with, and its good to be reminded of them now and again. So here are the blackbird and the collared dove.
