Long Forgotten Laundry

A goldfinch perched in flowers that took up residence within a forgotten pair of jeans.  I just loved this concept when I imagined it.  It's very exciting to have it here brought to life.  Drawn with archival ink pen, painted with watercolors and accented with alcohol ink and colored pencil.
