Birdwatch

Birdwatch

In the old days, archaeologists dug deep into caverns vast and wide looking for treasure. Once found the treasure was cleaned up and put on view for inspection and contemplation. These days painting can do a similar thing on the inside. We painters dig and delve into places inside that sometimes reek and scare, in the hope of uncovering that treasure that has always been there. Bird watch is a painting I found on such an internal excavation.
