"Black Bird, Blue Sky"
The photo of this painting is way darker than it is in person...I tried and tried and the photo couldn't really represent it. The colors are deep, but not dark. The camera does that sometimes.
This black bird was sitting on top of some boards that were on a roof. Scoping the area for the droppings left by happy people with picnic baskets. I seem to see them everywhere in suburbia lately. I know they are pretty smart as birds go.
