Months ago, I started a new collection of birds that represent stillness, beauty and grace. When I paint, I usually have several paintings in creation at the same time. Some may sit for weeks or months before I work on them again. Magical Landing is one of those painting that took months to evolve. The white egret wasn’t placed until the very end of the painting–yet, the egret is what motivated this piece. The poem came after the painting (90% of my poetry is written after I’ve finished a painting).
