Trompe L'oeil - How to Draw a Blue Bird by 

This whimsical composition is a visual artist’s statement about creative process itself. There is an element of humour in interpreting the idea – to create a piece of art you have to have an idea in your head (paper bird), passion and desire to do it (heart stone), your reference and knowledge (feather), skills and tools to make it happen (pencil).

    Hello Elena, I was viewing your fabulous works in Australian Artist today and was most impressed. It is so lovely. Then I noticed you were on red bubble and I am sorry I have never come across your work before, but you are on my watch list now and I will have a good look through your portfolio. You are such a wonderful artist. Regards Kerry

  • Thank you, Kerry, so much!My RedBubble site looks a bit abandoned as I did not put anything new there – too busy preparing for my exhibition in August. It was nice to hear from you :)
