The Three Muses Challenge - Something in the Air


Do you ever look at a piece of your artwork after you are finished creating it and wonder how it could possibly have come from your imagination? The creative process is an interesting one as it weaves together aspects of one's inner world that might have remained hidden if it had not been for the artistic call. These two pages arose from an idea I had to use passages on baby birds from a vintage bird book. When I read them I laughed because I could honestly have substituted "human" parent for "bird" parent in so many of the sentences. This inspired me to use the combination of birds and babies in these round robin journal pages that are my entry for this week's Three Muses Challenge.
