Knowing You Are Loved Mixed Media

The idea for this bird family came to me about two weeks ago.  I bounced it around in my head, doodled it, tossed it and then finally realized that it had to be done.  The way the parents are looking at their sloppy big baby with those big loving eyes just says it all for me, time to leave the nest buddy boy. The layers have been created with the ripped paper gesso technique, watercolor washes, acrylic sprays, stencils, stamps and markers.
