Behind the Art: Bluebird of Happiness

July 24, 2021

Have you ever seen the movie K-PAX?  While it wasn't the initial inspiration for the drawing (I went through a phase where pretty much everything that I drew was some sort of bird), that movie pops into my head whenever I see this art print. 

The original piece of artwork that I drew in my sketchbook had long roots at the bottom of the tree, but I decided that I didn't like the look of it. So, once I had it scanned in to the computer, I removed the roots from the image.

What I like most about this drawing is the thick dark lines of the tree in contrast with the simplicity of the little bluebird, which I think makes it stand out even more.
