One a week art project 51 of 52: Bird in a Cage 1

Here is the latest from my One a week art project 51 of 52: Bird in a Cage 1

Prints available here.

I’ve been wanting to create this drawing for a while now. I actually drew a few of these birds in one of my Back Rooms Of My Mind drawings Door #13113.

I was inspired to create this drawing while listening to a song “Bird in a house” by the band- Railroad Earth. I heard this song and instantly replayed this song over and over again. If it were vinyl, I would have to purchase a new record by now.

Here's a great watercolor pencil starter set

Over the course of a few months, the song would play and I would envision these birds trapped in a cage. Finally, I decided to put pen to paper and draw them. I created this by drawing everything out in pencil and then I inked this with waterproof pens. Then I added some color and water to the watercolor paper and I was finished.

I recommend you listen to the song as well. I feel that this song will resonate with lots people because there are so many people in similar situations where they feel trapped.

Those words ring true with anyone out there in the multiverse?

Happy St. Paddy's Day and be safe everyone!
